Pongsaklek Wonjongkam (67-1, 34) Vs Daisuke Naito (32-2-2, 20)
Boxing has had many great rivalries with numerous fighters fighting multiple times over their career. One such rivalry, though one that often goes over-looked, is the one between Thai great Pongsaklek Wonjongkam and Daisuke Naito. The two men met 4 times in total in little under 6 years and their rivalry really had a bit of everything. Their first bout was a blow out by Wonjongkam, who stopped Naito in just 34 seconds, their second was a technical decision win for the Thai with Naito winning fight #3. Their final bout came 8 months after fight #3 and was their most evenly fought bout in the series. Coming into this one some thought Wonjongkam was a spent force though he would later go on to defeat Julio Cesar Miranda, Koki Kameda, Rey Megrino, Suriyan Sor Rungvisai, Takuya Kogawa and Edgar Sosa, as he he enjoyed a fantastic resurgence. Naito on the other hand would go on to score notable wins over Tomonobu Shimizu and Xiong Zhao Zhong.
