Tomorrow fight fans in Thailand will see WBA Minmumweight champion Knockout CP Freshmart (15-0, 7) [น็อคเอาท์ ซีพีเฟรชมาร์ท] battle against mandatory challenger Rey Loreto (23-13, 15). The bout is set to be a really interesting match up and a genuinely tough looking defense for the Thail world champion, despite the record of the upset minded Loreto.
For fans interested in gambling, or in odds, it's worth noting that Knockout, listed on betting websites under his birth name of Thammanoon Niyomtrong, is a clear favourite priced around 1/3 with a number of bookmakers. Those odds are showing he's a favourite but this isn't a clear cut outcome, and the bookies do think he'll have some problems over-coming the Filipino.
As for Loreto he's priced at a very attractive 2/1 to score another upset, womething he has now built his reputation on. His record may not show it but he's a very dangerous and is currently in the form of his career, having won his last 7 and having stopped his last 6.
For those unaware this bout will be on Thai channel channel 7 between 16:00 and 18:00 local time.
