Sometimes fighters fight on a specific date for traditional purposes, for examples the big shows in Japan at the end of the year. Strangely November 27th appeared, for a little bit of time, to be Oleydong's day.
In 2008 Oleydong Sithsamerchai defended his WBC Minimumweight title with a with a clear win over fellow Thai Pornsawan Porpramook in what was a rather 1-sided contest. For Oleydong this was his second defense of the title that he had taken from Den Junlaphan a year earlier, in fact almost to the day whilst for Pornsawan this was this was his second attempt to win a world title and come 14 months after his loss to Donnie Nietes in a WBO world title fight. Incidentally Oleydong would fight Pornsawan again in 2010, that time Pornsawan was robbed of a clear win with the bout being scored a draw. Although the rematch did see Oleydong fight much of the bout with an injury he was still very lucky to receive the draw.
Exactly a year after the first bout between Oleydong and Pornsawan fans saw the Thai world champion again defending his belt. On this occasional he very narrowly defeated Nicaraguan tough guy Juan Palacios in a bout that seemed to sum up the fact Oleydong was destroying himself to make the 105lb Minimumweight limit. Thankfully it wasn't long before Oleydong was forced to move up, though he did come undone against Kazuto Ioka before eventually moving all the way to Super Flyweight.
