Thailand's Yodmongkol Vor Saengthep (33-2, 20), pictured, returns to action for the first time this year on February 28th as he attempts to make the first defense of his WBA "interim" Flyweight world title.
The Thai, who is unbeaten 27 bouts dating back to April 2010, won the title by stopping Japan's Koki Eto back in November. He'll be returning to take on another Japanese fighter, this time Takuya Kogawa (22-3, 12).
Kogawa, best known to Thai fans for his loss to Pongsaklek Wonjongkam in 2011, is a former Japanese and OPBF champion though did lose his Japanese title last time out when he was defeat by Suguru Muranaka via split decision.
In regards to this fight it is yet another in a long line of great looking contests in the Flyweight division. Yodmongkol may not be a big name but he's exciting to watch with a clever and aggressive style. Kogawa, ranked #15 by the WBA, may not be a star but he's an established fighter who has got experience at this level and could well rely on that in this title challenge.
Details from the card are scarce though it will be promoted by Petpiya Fight and we're expecting it will be televised on Thai channel 7 just as Yodmongkol's title winning bout was.
