Earlier today fight fans turning in to Work Point for the latest WP Boxing event saw local prospect Chainoi Worawut (4-0-1, 4), aka Thattana Luangphon, claim his first title.
The unbeaten Thai was taking on Singaporean Muhammad Ashiq (6-1-1, 5) in a bout for the WBC Youth Super Bantamweight title. On paper it looked an interesting match up, given that both men were unbeaten, but in reality it was a mismatch.
The Thai, a genuine prospect, quickly found his rhythm and landed big shots early in the open round. He allowed Ashiq some offense but in reality it was a clearly round for the local, well before he dropped Worawut at the very end of the round.
The Singaporean beat the count, and went out for round 2, though seemed to be well aware that he was out matched, out gunned, and skilled. Body shots from Worawut hurt Ashiq, and had him on the retreat before he landed a huge right hand to drop Ashiq hard. This time the Singaporean wouldn't beat the count, with Worawut taking home his 4th early win in 5 bouts, along with his neew title.
On November 17th Thai fans will get a treat with WorkPoint show casing one of their top domestic prospects in a good test.
The prospect in question is 21 year old puncher Chainoi Worawut (3-0, 3) [ชายน้อย วรวุฒิ] who takes on decent domestic foe Rakniran Muadransarakam (13-2, 8) [รักนิรันดร์ หมวดรันสารคาม] in a notable step up in class.
The unbeaten man made his debut this past May, stopping Hui Lu in 2 rounds, and has since stopped a domestic foe as well as Japan's Yuya Nakamura, this is however a notable step up and and Rakniran has yet to be stopped, with his only losses coming by decision, losing a technical decision in 2016 to Shota Kawaguchi and a close decision to Petchbarngborn Kokietgym earlier this year.
At the moment we're not aware of what other bouts are on this show, but the main event alone makes it worth tuning in for.
