Ryan FordRyan “The Real Deal” Ford (5-0, 3  KO’s) is one of the hardest working athletes you will find period. He is constantly training and always looking for ways to better improve himself as a fighter. Recently Ford made the trip to Thailand where he will be for a year to broaden his talents in the boxing ring at the Phuket Top Team gym. Ford believes that within his time in Thailand he may be able to drop himself down from a light heavyweight to a middleweight fighter.

Ford’s move to Thailand didn’t come long after his last fight which took place on March 11th at the Shaw Conference Centre in Edmonton, Alberta. Ford made quick work of his opponent David Whittom winning via first round technical knockout and went virtually unscathed. That being said, it comes as no surprise that he already has a fight lined up for the near future.
“Fight is booked,” stated Ford via social media. “[On] April 22nd I will be taking on Thailand’s former Olympic gold and silver medalist Manus Boonjumnong (5-0, 3 KO’s) in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Time to introduce The Real Deal to the Asian boxing world!”
The fight between Ford and Boonjumnong will be an interesting one. Both share the same record as professional boxers and both have competed in combat sports for quite some time. As an MMA fighter, Ford went 22-5 with 12 KO’s in the span of seven years (2007-2014). Boonjumnong has accomplished a lot as an amateur boxer. He fought and won gold in the junior welterweight division at the 2004 Olympics that was held in Athens, Greece and then went on to win silver the following Olympics in Beijing, China.
The fighters will face off live on Thairath TV in Thailand and boxing fans will also be able to watch via computer or mobile phone around the world.
