Saman turned pro at the age of 21, with a love for professional boxing, having written a letter to ask for help from Mom Rajawongse (M.R.) Naris Kridakorn, editor of World Boxing Magazine. M.R. Naris had recommended him to the "Sorjaturong Boxing Gym" (ค่ายมวย ส.จาตุรงค์) by Suchart Theerawuttichuwong as owner and trainer.Saman won the WBC, IBF and lineal junior flyweight titles during his career. He is the third Thai world boxing champion not to be previously involved in Muaythai (the first being Pone Kingpetch, and the second being Chartchai Chionoi). Saman was also the first Thai and Asian boxer who won world championships of two institutions at the same time. Before that, he was criticized for not being capable enough to be a world champion. In 1993 he challenged the WBC strawweight world champion with Ricardo López, but was defeated in the second round. He defeated reigning champion Humberto González in a thrilling fight that was named Ring Magazine's Fight of the Year in 1995 to win the IBF and WBC titles. Both fighters were knocked down twice during the fight. He defended the WBC portion of the title ten times before losing it to Yo Sam Choi in 1999 via an unanimous decision. Their rematch was postponed seven times, finally taking place in 2001, when Saman lost by a knockout in the seventh round. He retired in 2005 after being knocked out in the first round by Kōki Kameda.
