Earlier today it was revealed that former Thai amateur standout Apichet Petchmanee (1-0, 1) will return to the ring on December 22nd as he gets his first title bout.
The talented Apichet, who debuted in debuted in October and stopped the then 13-0 Attanon Kunlawong in 2 rounds, will be up against fellow unbeaten Thai Sadudee Tor Buamas (8-0, 6), himself a former PABA champion, in a bout for the OPBF "silver" Light Welterweight title.
In theory the champion will have their eye on the OPBF regular title, held by Japan's Rikki Naito (23-2, 7) [内藤 律樹], and that would be something to look forward to in the new year given the amateur pedigree of Apichet and the power of Sadudee.
The bout will be shown on Workpoint, so there will be an international stream available for the contest and looks to be yet another treat boxing fans will be getting in the run up to Christmas.
