Lao Sinat

    Lao Sinat (Khmer: ឡៅ សីណាត), born in 1990, is a retired Kun Khmer fighter from Kampong Speu Province. Known as “The Pioneer of the Laos,” Sinat quickly rose to fame, securing several National Trophies, belts, and medals. He currently serves as a Kun Khmer referee and judge.

    Personal Life and Family Legacy

    Lao Sinat leads a family bloodline of Kun Khmer fighters, including Lao Chantrea, Lao Chetra, and Lao Sayneth. Before entering the world of martial arts, Sinat worked in a garment factory but returned home due to unsatisfactory earnings. His passion for martial arts led him to frequently attend village boxing matches and eventually participate without prior training. Despite initial success, a defeat to a trained boxer motivated him to join a boxing gym in 2004 through a connection made by a local man. Under the guidance of Master Hang Soeurn, Sinat trained diligently until his retirement.

    Early Career

    After about a month of training, Sinat made his professional debut at a National Event, winning first place in the 54kg category. His family legacy in boxing was solidified when he nervously debuted on TV5, facing a more experienced opponent whom he had admired since childhood. He won that fight, marking the start of a successful career.


    Lao Sinat’s career is marked by significant achievements, including three National Trophies, three belts with three defending titles, and three medals in the 54kg, 60kg, and 63.5kg categories (he may have won more later). Each competition involved contests against nine other fighters to win the belt, making it challenging to crown any championship in those days. A highlight of Sinat’s career was his 100th bout, where he knocked out top-tier fighter Vong Noy in the fourth round with left leg kicks, avenging a previous first-round TKO defeat.

    Legacy and Current Status
