Eto burst on to the international stage with his brilliant win over Kompayak Porpramook last year, a win that saw him claiming the WBA interim Flyweight title and scoring one of the most amazing wins by a Japanese fighter on Thai soil. Eto returned to Thailand in his following fight to defend that title against the little known Yodmongkol Vor Saengthep, a fighter who was completely unknown outside of Thailand.
We won't ruin what happens in the fight but again it was Eto's boxing limitations and insane heart that made the contest so much fun from the first bell to the final bell and, as with Eto's fights with Porpramook and, more recently, Ardin Diale you really cannot take your eyes off the action at any point for fear of missing something special.
We advise that after you watch this bout you watch the Eto/Porpramook fight, if you haven't already and the Eto/Diale fight, again if you haven't already. If you've seen all 3 then you will know exactly why we love Koki Eto.
