The fight, which took place on the untelevised portion of the WBC double world title show, was the sort of result that no-one expected though it showed just how good Matsumoto is.
What made the result even more amazing is that Kaovichit had gone 8 rounds earlier this year before being stopped by Kohei Kono in a WBA Super Flyweight title bout. Sadly for the Thai this will likely be his last high profile bout considering he has been stopped twice in the space of 6 months.
After the bout Matsumoto, a stablemate of Naoya Inoue and Takuma Inoue, indicated that his intention is to challenge Japanese Super Flyweight champion Sho Ishida next time out. On this display that bout would be a 50-50 contest and the winner would likely be moved towards an OPBF title bout by the end of 2015, if they don't feel comfortable at competing for a world title.
