We know the Thai gets some hate from specific corners of the western boxing world but his record speaks for it's self. He's had 90 wins, more than 20 world title defences and more notable wins than many modern day fighter who get significantly more praise than he does. In fact Wonjongkam's string of victories over the likes of Malcolm Tunacao, Luis Alberto Lazarte, Daisuke Naito, Gilberto Keb Baas, Tomonobu Shimizu, Julio Cesar Mirando, Koki Kameda, Suriyan Sor Rungvisai and Edgar Sosa should be enough to secure him a place in the Hall of Fame.
Sadly for Wonjongkam his last successful defence was one of the most disappointing as he secured a 47 second technical draw with Japanese novice Hirofumi Mukai.
Prior to the early ending we appeared to be on the way to having a high paced boxing contest but a head clash ruined the hope of the very quickly and left Mukai bleeding profusely forcing the bout to be immediately halted. With less than a minute gone there wasn't even a reason to go to the score cards leasing to a very disappointing ending to what was promising to be a good bout.
After this bout Wonjongkam would lose his title in a massive upset to Sonny Boy Jaro. Mukai, who is still only a youngster, later managed to secure a fight with the then reigning WBC Super Flyweight champion Srisaket Sor Rungvisai though suffered a painful loss in that bout and it seems likely that his world title dreams will end if he suffers any more setbacks.
