The problem with a lot of Thai's is that we don't really know how good they are until the fight someone notable. Sometimes it turns out that they are pretty good, such as Amnat Ruenroeng who impressed against Rocky Fuentes, whilst other times they have hyper-inflated records based on their activity domestically as opposed to their actual ability.
One man we're feeling could be as good as advertised is PABA Super Flyweight Super champion Norasingh Kokietgym, who scored one of his more notable victories last November when he stopped the usually testing Indonesian fighter Heri Amol.
Amol isn't a mind blowing fighter but he's the sort of guy who has made a name for himself on the Asian scene by being a journeyman who can test fighters and give then an occasional scare, as he did when he dropped Kazuto Ioka. Sadly for Amol this fight proved 2 things. Firstly he's not a Super Flyweight and secondly that Norasingh is a pretty solid fighter.
Interestingly Amol has been selected as the debut opponent for Japanese youngster Ken Shiro and we're expecting to see Amol give Ken Shiro a very good test. For that fight Amol will be fighting at 108lbs his more natural division, and he should give a more solid performance than he did here.
Here we include some of the best, most interesting, most exciting or most eye catching videos from around the Asian boxing world.
