Chase Corley Will Have One Finally Go at Muay Thai

By Peter Lim

Houston middleweight Chase Corley will fight a one-day, four-man Muay Thai tournament in Hong Kong on Monday, Oct. 21. Corley's opponents hail from Thailand, France and Canada.
 
Corley, 28, seems to be undergoing pugilistic identity crisis of sorts. He began boxing as a teen but switched to Muay Thai as a young adult and spent the better part of 2006-2011, fighting in Thailand where he amassed a 16-12 record.
 
Last year, he returned to Houston to resume fighting under the Marquis of Queensbury rules and is 3-0 (3 KOs) as a pro boxer. The switch was a permanent one, he declared, since practicing two sports simultaneously was counterproductive to both.
 
But he received an offer too lucrative to refuse from Hong Kong, so he is back to delivering kicks and elbows in addition to punches. He is currently training in Bangkok to re-acclimate himself with Muay Thai.
 
"They say a week of training in Thailand is like three weeks over here so I'm looking forward to it," Corley told The Houston Chronicle.
 
"This is my last one for sure in Muay Thai. I started in Asia and I want to end it Asia. My last fight in Muay Thai wasn't what I wanted it to be. I'm kind of putting it all on the line. I want to end it with a good, crowd-pleasing fight."
