Muay Thai Guy Podcast – Episode 94
Rayen Simson is one of the best kick boxers ever claiming 7 world titles in 3 different organizations and was ranked number 2 at the Lumpinee Stadium – which is a very difficult task for any farang (foreigner) fighter.
In our interview, Rayen shines some light on his career and chats about a number of topics including:
- How he used to sneak out at night just to go to train at the local kickboxing gym.
- Where his unique and explosive style of fighting came from.
- How Andy Ristie originally trained at Simson Gym and uses a similar style as Rayen but a little more reckless.
- Why he decided to make the voyage to Thailand to fight against the best.
- How he changed his fighting style while fighting in Thailand to suit the judging.
- What his daily routine was like in Thailand and how it’s different than training in a Dutch gym.
- What his training camps look like and what type of strength and conditioning he does.
- How his gym is known as a tough gym due to the intensity that everyone trains at.
- His thoughts on his fights against Ramon Dekkers, Ivan Hippolyte and other kick fighting legends.
- And much, much more!
