CHONGQING,CHINA- Wengfeng Ge (11W-1,6KO’s) of China and Suriyan Satorn (60-7,41KO’s) of Thailand will battle for the vacant WBO Global Flyweight title this Saturday October 26 at the Yubei Stadium in Chongqing. Both easily made weight, Ge weighed in at 111.3lbs while Satorn was at 111.5 lbs during the official weigh-in held at the fight venue.
Ge will be looking to bounce back from his first pro loss against Filipino Giemel Magramo last January in Suzhou. Ge suffered an eye injury and the swelling around his eye - which also had a cut - got worse leading to the tenth round stoppage.
Ge has scored wins against former IBF world champ Amnat Ruenroeng and Filipino prospects Melmark Dignos and Ivan Soriano.
Satorn, also known as Kompayak Porpramook, won the WBC light flyweight world title in 2011 against Mexican Adrian Hernandez. After one defense against Filipino Jonathan Taconing, he lost to Hernandez in their rematch. In his previous appearance in China last January, Satorn lost to Jing Xiang by unanimous decision for the WBC Silver light flyweight title.
Chunlei Lin (9-3,2KO’s) of China and Galih Susanto (17-9-1,4KO’s) of Indonesia will dispute the WBC ABCO Silver super bantamweight title. Lin stepped on the scales at 121.4lbs while Susanto weighed 119.7lbs.
Susanto has shared the ring and lost to quality Filipino boxers like former title-holders Marlon Tapales and Jhack Tepora. Lin has beaten Indonesian Rocky Manufoe and lost to Japanese Shun Wakabayashi.
The undercards will feature a female fight between Jianping Ouyang (China) vs Charimae Salvador (Philippines). Both Ouyang (3-1-1,1KO) and Salvador (4-3,1KO) weighed 104.9lbs. For the rest of the undercards - Ruidong Zhou (3-1) vs Xiong Xiao (Pro debut), DianXing Zhu (3-0,2KO’s) vs Detao Wu (pro debut) and Wen Song Liu (2-1,2KO’s) vs Peng Huang (1-3-1,1KO).
This weigh-in and fights are supervised and sanctioned by the Professional Boxing Commission of China.
