Chokdee Chops Down Teeto With Crisp KO
Like almost every finish in Muay Thai, this one was setup by the jab.
Chokdee has his opponent, Teeto, against the ropes. Teeto can only move forward, left or right. Chokdee is waiting cleverly to pick his shots. He feints a jab with a slight lowering of the hands and a small step forward. Teeto’s counter to his jab is a stiff arm. Chokdee sees this. It’s time to strike.
Chokdee initiates his left hook with the exact same motion as his jab. He begins lowering his hand, but instead of taking a small step forward, he leaps forward, throwing his left hook over Teeto’s stiff arm. His hook lands flush and Teeto is out.

Chokdee’s beautiful left hook was what got him the finish. However, there are some deeper layers of technical setup to dissect:

Let’s observe, through the eyes of Lawrence Kenshin, how much damage the jab and teep can do together:
