This coming Friday is a pretty quiet day in Asian boxing, the calm before the storm of a busy weekend, but does feature a notable Thai fighter in action.
That Thai is former WBA Flyweight title challenger Stamp Kiatniwat (19-1, 7), who takes on Jaysever Abcede (15-8, 10) in a bout for the WBA Asia Flyweight title, which Stamp will be defending. The Thai has gone 4-0 since losing in his world title fight against Kazuto Ioka and will be looking to build his way towards another world title shot. Aged just 20 there is no rush for the Thai but it's clear that he and his team will be wanting to work their way up the WBA rankings with this Asia title. Abcede is a 23 year old Filipino who has mixed in great company, with losses to Wanheng Menayothin, Tsubasa Koura, Panya Pradabsri and Dexter Alimento. Despite coming up short in most of his most notable bouts Abecede he does hold a big win in Thailand against Pigmy Kokietgym and will come in to this bout with the mentality that he can get another big upset here.
