We all know that the next few weeks are going to be huge for the Flyweight division. First we get the WBC title fight between Akira Yegashi and Roman Gonzalez, this coming Friday, just a day later we get another super fight as Juan Francisco Estrada defends his unified WBO and WBA "super" titles against Giovani Segura. On September 10th IBF champion Amnat Ruenroeng will be defending his title against McWilliams Arroyo and less than a week later Kazuto Ioka will return to the ring in what is expected to be a world title prelude, or warm up bout.
Now we have another date to add to the calender for Flyweight fans. October 17th.
That's the date pencilled in for the exciting looking WBA unification bout between interim champion Yodmongkol Vor Saengthep (34-2, 20) of Thailand and Argentinian Juan Carlos Reveco (24-1, 18) the "regular" champion. Unfortunately for Yodmongkol however he will be the travelling fighter need to travel to Argentina for the bout.
Although we were very impressive by Yodmongkol in his victory over Koki Eto to win the title last year we much less impressed by his controversial win over Takuya Kogawa this past March, in fact we Yodmongkol was clearly out worked in that bout and got a gift. He cannot be expecting the same sort of present with his upcoming bout, especially considering the way Reveco notched up his latest defence, a controversial win over Felix Alvarado.
We do feel that home advantage for this bout was crucial and with Reveco getting the bout at home he needs to be favoured, especially as this will be Yodmongkol's first bout outside of Thailand.
