In September 2009 Thailand's Poonsawat Kratingdaenggym claimed the WBA Super Bantamweight title as he defeated Ireland's Bernade Dunne.

In recent years we've seen numerous Thai's fall short on their travels as they've tried to bring home world titles. Sometimes their efforts have been great, such as that of Terdsak Kokietgym who gave Orlando Salido absolute hell, whilst others have been relatively mixed such as that of Pungluang Sor Singyu prior to his stoppage loss against Tomoki Kameda.
Thai's haven't always lost on the road in world title fights however and in 2009 Poonsawat Kratingdaenggym played the role of spoiler in Thailand when he defeated the hugely popular Bernard Dunne in Dunne's back yard.
The Thai looked like a danger before the fight was made and by the end of round 1 it was clear Dunne wasn't going to have an easy night with Poonsawat who hadn't travelled to make up the numbers. Sadly for Dunne Poonsawat had come to win and that's what he did in impressive fashion as he battered the brave but out-matched Irishman.
