Whilst the biggest surprise today was that Kwanpichit OnesongchaiGym only just kept a hold of his WBO Oriental Flyweight title, it wasn't the only surprise of the day. The other major surprise, at least in regards to Asian boxing, was one that saw Nonggift Onesongchaigym (6-1-1, 1) surprisingly held to a 6 round draw by fellow Thai Maimuang Sitkhurusian (1-4-1).
The bout was expected to be an easy victory for Nonggift against Maimuang but instead the under-dog gave a stirring performance and possibly deserved more than a draw.
Korean former world champion IFBA version, Hee-Jung Yuh (9-2, 3) may never be known as a puncher but she did successfully record her second stoppage of the year this past weekend.
Matched against Thai novice Maimuang Sitkhurusian (1-4) Yuh managed to record her 8th straight victory as she scored a 6th round stoppage with just 31 seconds of the bout remaining.
Whilst Yuh wasn't defending her title she may well feel that this bout could help her move from the Super Flyweight division up to the Bantamweight division, a class that may well suit her now. Aged 34 it's debatable as to whether or not she'll manage to claim a more respected title. Though Bantamweight is the slightly weaker of the two classes right now in female boxing.
