November 17th has been one of the least interesting dates, historically, that we've come across Thankfully however we have managed to some things of note.
In 2006 Thai great Pongsaklek Wonjongkam retained his WBC Flyweight title with a clear win over South African challenger Monelisi Myekeni in a bout staged in the Suranaree Stadium. This was Wonjongkam's 16th defense of the title and continued his great reign of the early 00's. Myekeni certainly isn't one of the better names on Wonjongkam's record however he did show some potential, potential that was taken from him only weeks after this fight when he suffered a serious injury in a car accident that forced him into retirement.
More recently, in 2012, we had a great contest between Brian Viloria and Hernan "Tyson" Marquez. This bout saw the WBA and WBO Flyweight titles being unified as Viloria put one one of the best performances of his career and dominated Marquez before eventually stopping him in round 10. On the same show as this bout we also saw Roman Gonzalez defending the WBA Light Flyweight title in a war with Juan Francisco Estrada. Both of these bouts were great contenders for FOTY and have remained linked with a lot of talk not being about a Gonzalez Vs Estrada rematch, a dream bout for 2015.
