CHONGQING,CHINA- Wengfeng Ge of China punched a shutout against Thailand’s Suriyan Satorn in front of a sold-out crowd inside the Yubei Stadium. Satorn could not match Ge’s speed and volume punching and kept getting tagged with clean hits to the head as the fight progressed.
Ge staggered Satorn in the sixth with a quick uppercut and again in the end of the round. But the Thai showed his heart and durability and even caused facial swelling on Ge in the eighth round. But Ge continued to box well, thwarting the Satorn’s efforts for a late miracle.
The judges scores – Michelle Ng (Macao) – 120-108, Edward Ligas (Philippines) – 120-108 and Mekin Sumon (Thailand) – 119-109. The referee was Surat Soikrachang of Thailand.
Ge (12W-1,6KO’s) was awarded the WBO Global flyweight title. He returned to the win column after suffering his first loss against Filipino Giemel Magramo last January in Suzhou,China, in a fight where Ge had an eye injury. Satorn, also known as Kompayak Porpramook, is a former WBC light flyweight world champion. He drops to 60-8,41KO’s.
This was the second time Ge beat a former world title-holder after his unanimous decision win against former IBF flyweight champ Amnat Ruenroeng of Thailand two years ago.
In the supporting main bout, China’s Chunlei Lin stopped Indonesian Galih Susanto in the fifth round for the WBC ABCO Silver superbantamweight title. After an uneventful first couple of rounds, things started getting feisty. Susanto was deducted a point in the fourth for repeated headbutts. Wild swings were exchanged. In the fifth, Lin knocked down Susanto,who instead of trying to get up, kept on complaining to Thai referee Mekin Sumon, who reached ten at the 2:59 mark.
Lin moved up to 10-3,3KO’s and won his first regional belt. Susanto drops to 17-10-1,4KO’s.
