Some good news for fight fans as muay Thai superstar Saenchai announced on his Instagram account yesterday that he was released from the hospital after being admitted nearly two weeks ago with a case of COVID-19. The boxer said he was safe and thanked people for their support.
Saenchai, 40, had been feeling symptoms for a week prior to his admission and initially had trouble gaining access to a hospital bed in Thailand where infection rates for the virus have been soaring. He'd been scheduled to fight in late April against Luca Lassalle but the fight had to be canceled due to his illness. On Saturday, though, he posted a video to his Facebook page showing himself smoothly shadowboxing in his hospital room with the caption, "Payback time, Covid-19 I'm steppin up my game this round! Now I show you some trick or two."
