One this day...
2006-Hozumi Hasegawa (19-2, 6) vs Veeraphol Sahaprom (51-2-2, 35)
In 2005 Hozumi Hasegawa announced himself on the world stage by out pointing Veeaphol Sahaprom to become the WBC Bantamweight champion. Around 11 months later the two men would battle again, with Sahaprom looking to reclaim the title and Hasegawa looking to make his second defense. This the bout had no doubt about the winner, with Hasegawa showing he had more than he record suggested, and he stopped Sahaprom in the 9th round, in spectacular fashion, to retain his title!
2006-Gao Li Jun (1-0) vs Ha-Na Kim (3-0, 1)
In recent years we have seen a new level of attention being put on to female boxing. Even with that increase in profile we're not seeing tope fighters matched like some of the Asian fighters were earlier this century. One such example was Gao Li Jun from China, who won the WBA female Featherweight title in her second bout, stopping Ha Na Kim, in the 10th round in Korea. Sadly Jun would never defend her belt, and her achievement was over shadowed just a few years later when Hyun Mi Choi took the same title on her debut!
1991-Rolando Pascua (25-5, 9) Vs Melchor Cob Castro (30-2-4, 15)
In 1990 Filipino fighter Rolando Pascua claimed the WBC Light Flyweight title, stopping the great Humbero Gonzalez in a massive upset. Sadly Pascua's reign was short lived, losing the title just 3 months later to Mexican Melchor Cob Castro, via 10th round TKO. Sadly for Pascua he would never reclaim a world title after this.
1988-Pichit Sithbanprachan (0-0) vs Taksin Muangsurin (2-3, 1)
Thailand's Pichit Sithbanprachan made his debut when he stopped Taksin Muangsurin in 2 rounds. Pichit would later go on to claim the IBF Flyweight title, holding it from 1992 to 1994, and end up retiring as a rare unbeaten world champion. He did, like many, make a comeback, in 1996 and in 2000, but still remained unbeaten running up a 24-0 (18) record.
