The first action of a new months takes place in Thailand where fans get an interesting looking card with a genuinely exciting main event.
The aforementioned main event will see WBA “interim” champion Knockout CP Freshmart (10-0, 5) defending his belt against unbeaten Venezuelan Alexis Diaz (16-0, 10). This bout is among the most mouth watering “interim” title fights we've seen and although Diaz has been in good form it's hard to see him getting a decision in Thailand so he may well throw caution to the wind and try to stop Knockout. If that's his tactics then we are in for a special kind of fight.
In the main under-card bout Panomroonglek Kaiyanghadaogym (45-2, 27) will be defending his PABA Bantamweight crown against very limited Indonesian foe Arega Yunian (3-3), who was stopped in 2 rounds by Ryo Matsumoto back in 2013. This should be a very easy win for the Thai who has got eyes on WBA champion Jamie McDonnell.
Another under-card bout will see the experienced Ratchasak KKP (28-3-1, 13) battle against novice professional Saengthong Chor Pakdee (0-1), who suffered a KO of the year type loss on his debut to Kongfah CP Freshmart last year. Ratchasak will be looking for his 6th win since losing in Macau to Rex Tso, in a bout that saw him twice drop the Hong Kong “Wonder Boy”.
Another under-card bout will see novice pro Petchtae Petchyindee (1-0) take on “loser” Fahpikard Twins Gym (2-8), who has lost his last 7 straight bout. This should be a straight forward win for Petchtae though it's unlikely to tell us anything really notable about the unbeaten man.
