Pich Sambath

    Pich Sambath (Khmer: ពេជ្រ សម្បត្តិ), born in 2001 from Kampong Speu Province, is a dynamic Kun Khmer fighter who has swiftly emerged as a force to be reckoned within the Cambodian martial arts scene​ very quickly. Sambath, known by his formidable moniker “Krabei Prey Snaeng Daek” which translates as “the Steel-Horn Wild Buffalo”, has taken the Kun Khmer world by storm as a fearless fighter with excellent stamina.

    Personal Life

    Pich Sambath, born “Phoeun Sambath,” came into the world on October 12, 2002, in Kandoul village, Por Angkrong commune, Borset district, Kampong Speu Province. As the eldest son in a family of four siblings—two brothers and two sisters—Sambath’s upbringing was rooted in the rural lifestyle of Kampong Speu. His father worked as a construction foreman, while his mother tended to the family’s agricultural needs. Notably, Sambath’s younger brother, Phoeun Vansing, delved into Kun Khmer training under the ring name Phan Singhak.

    At the age of 19, Sambath ventured into his first Khmer boxing match, igniting his passion for the sport. Despite his initial dedication, his formal education only reached the seventh grade before he decided to pursue other opportunities.

    In 2019, Sambath commenced his Khmer boxing training, yet financial constraints prompted him to temporarily halt his pursuits and seek alternative employment. However, driven by a renewed sense of purpose and under the guidance of Mr. Pich Sophann, Sambath reimmersed himself in training in 2021, a commitment he remains steadfast in today.

    Sambath’s journey into the realm of Kun Khmer commenced in 2021, and in just 2 years and a half, he has etched his name into the hearts of fans nationwide. His dedication to the craft has propelled him to unprecedented heights, breaking records and earning accolades that underscore his rapid ascent in the sport. Sambath has transcended geographical boundaries to become a nationally recognized figure. His commitment to rigorous training, coupled with self-care, reflects a promising future for the young fighter.
