MTA: The Challenger Muaythai just finished airing; it seemed people enjoyed you on the show. How was the experience?
Antoine: I think the viewers of TV have loves and enjoyed my Thai boxing style. It was a new experience to live with other fighters but I don't like to prepare and fight without my trainer, coaches and family.
MTA: You are fighting in the one night tournament at I-1 Extreme, is there anyone of the other fighters you would prefer to fight in the first round of the tournament?
Antoine: In the first round I had the choice. I wanted to fight Cyrus Washington but the promotion refused and gave me another opponent (Ilya Grad).
MTA: Do you prepare for a one night tournament differently than you would for a normal fight?
Antoine: Yes, because you have to adapt to different styles of several fighters.
MTA: What do you think is the key to winning the tournament as far as strategy goes?
Antoine: Fighting as few rounds as possible and not getting hurt.
MTA: Do you already have plans for your fights next year?
Antoine: Winning the Toyota Cup, fighting in Fighter Zone World Series 2012, coming back to Lumpinee and Siam Omnoi stadiums for some big fights, may be fighting in North America.
MTA: Is there anyone you feel you would like to particularly face next year?
Antoine: I fought all the best fighter in the world the last 2 years. It’s time for Buakaw, but not sure they would accept to fight against me.
MTA: How are things at Siangboxing, were you affected by the flooding in Thailand at all?
Antoine: No, we are lucky and some fighters of other gyms came to my place to live and train, like Sentiengnoi boxers.
MTA: Your brother Victor will be fighting at the I-1 Extreme event as well. When you fight on the same events he does is it hard to simply focus on your fights knowing he will be fighting as well?
Antoine: Not easy because I'm scared for him and my brother as well for me, but it’s good for me because he's in my corner and gives me heart.
