Earlier today Thai promotional organisation Kiatkreein released a hype video for an upcoming IBF Pan Pacific Featherweight title fight, which has been set for April 17th and will be aired on Thai channel 7.
From what we understand the bout will see Kiatkreerin's very own Patomsith Pathompothong (11-3, 4) against Indonesian fighter Jason Butar Butar (18-15-1, 14) in another bout that makes us wonder just what it takes for the IBF to sanction one of these regional title bouts.
On recent form neither guy has been impressive. Patomsith has lost 3 of his last 6 and has never been in a scheduled 10 rounder whilst Butar Butar has lost 3 of his last 4, with his one win in that run coming against the very limited Gusti Elnino. The bout does however reflect the great working relationship between Kiatkreerin and the IBF.
