Friday saw a duo of female bouts in Thailand as the country searches for it's next great female fighter.
The least interesting of these bouts, at least on paper, saw the debuting Nongnun Mor Krungthepthonburi (1-0) defeat fellow novice Chabaprai Kiatsanram (1-1). This bout is hard to say too much about other than that it's good for Nongnun to have a debut victory.
In the other bout Nonggift Or Wanchoed (6-1, 1) claimed her biggest victory to date defeating former WIBA title challenger Napaporn Superchamps (7-8, 1) via decision. Whilst Napaporn has now lost her last 4 bouts this is still a good win for Nonggift who, at just 17, looks like she has a lot of potential
It's not too often a fight debuts again a former world title challenger but that's exactly what Chabaprai Kiatsanram (1-0) did earlier today in Thailand.
Making her debut in Bangkok's royal square Kiatsanram took on Ploynapa Sakrungrueng (9-4-1), a woman who had only previously lost in world title fights to Yeon-Hee Kim and Ju Hee Kim, both in Korea. Despite the gulf in experience going against her the novice showed the class needed to over-come Sakrungrueng.
Kiatsanram wasn't the only fighter making her debut on the card and fellow debutant Petchpaya Mor Krungthepthonburi (1-0) also got off to a victorious start as she out pointed Yokhow Sor Lertchai (1-1) who appears to have been fighting for the first time in 3 years.
