This past Wednesday saw a solitary Asian card, televised by Thailand Channel 9 (or Modernine). Promoted by Narongwas Buamasit gave a chance for 4 of his stable to get in the ring and remain active.
The main event of the card saw Tiger Tor Buamas (14-0, 11) successfully defend his interim WBC Asian Boxing Council Bantamweight title as he out pointed Filipino opponent Richard Garcia (24-16-1, 6). Although the result may have been a slight disappointment for the hard hitting Tiger, he will have been pleased to have secured 12 useful rounds against a durable opponent.
As well as Tiger there was also distance action for Pharanpetch Tor Buamas (11-0, 9) who couldn't stop the durable Suor Carryboy (8-8-1, 4). This was the 8th successive bout that Carryboy has failed to win but at 37 years old he is still proving to be a solid test able to get youngsters plenty of rounds.
Also in action was female great Samson Tor Buamas (29-3, 14), the current WIBA Minimumweight champion. Samson managed to secure herself a non-title victory at Light Flyweight as she defeated Saosukhothai Sorkor Peera (0-1) in a 6 round bout.
The card only actually had a single early victory with young prospect Saengthong Tor Buamas (4-0, 4) stopping Thepyothin Sithdabnid (0-2) as the Tor Buamas' swept the card 4-0.
The only other card of the day that featured any sort of an Asian interest was in the Ukraine as 2 Uzbek fighters travelled across to the west. Sadly for those fighters neither secure a win in their opponents back yard.
In a competitive bout Olim Nazarov (10-2, 7) put up a brave showing a losing 6 round decision against the unbeaten Oleg Malynovskyy (8-0, 2). Nazarov refused to just sit down and lose and did enough to perhaps scrape a draw though none of the judges agreed as Malynovskyy took a unanimous decision.
For Bahrom Payozov (21-3, 15) things were much more difficult and it showed as he took only a round or 2 from the world ranked Viktor Postol (22-0, 10). Postol, ranked #2 by the WBC and #13 by the WBO is nearing a world title fight so there little to be ashamed of by Payozoz.
