This coming Friday fans in Thailand can tune into a title double header on Channel 7. Neither bout looks great on paper, but both do feature unbeaten local hopefuls taking on visiting fighters with more experience.
In a bout for the WBC Asian Boxing Council Minimumweight title we'll see 25 year old Southpaw Satanmuanglek CP Freshmart (3-0, 1) take on Indonesian foe Melianus Mirin (9-3, 6). Not too much is known about the Thai, who hasn't faced anyone of any note, but this is a chance to make his first mark on the sport. Interestingly for Mirin this will be his first bout outside of Indonesia, and he's currently riding a 5 fight winning run coming into this bout, so should make for an interesting test.
The other title bout will see 19 year old Wanchana Menayothin (7-0, 3) facing off with Agus Kustiawan (18-6-2, 8) for the WBC Asian Boxing Council Featherweight title. On paper this looks like a simple win for the emerging prospect, but the Indonesian visitor has proven his toughness and could well provide some stiff foil for the local teenager, who debuted in late 2016. The local is a former WBC Youth Intercontinental champion and this is a credible step up for the youngster.
