One fighter who really impressed us last year was Thailand's destructive Srisaket Sor Rungvisai. The Thai fighter, who won the WBC Super Flyweight title last year, did things that we'd like to see more of from champions including fought stay busy fights on a regular basis. Those fights were clear mismatches, they were supposed to be. Stay busy fights are just that, fights to stay busy not fights to prove your skills.
Srisaket's busy schedule continued this year and and his first bout of 2014 took place on January 21st, just 2 months after he had made his first world title defence. As with most of these stay busy bouts it was a mismatch that saw Srisaket battle against novice foe Joel Kwong of the Philippines.
In regards to his record Kwong was listed on boxrec.com as being 1-3, notably however he is better than his record indicates and his 3 losses all came against recognisable fighters in the form of Ratchasak Kokietgym, Sod Kokietgym and Petch Kokietgym. Notable Kwong took all 3 of those fighters the scheduled 6 rounds, this bout however failed to even last 1 round as Srisaket showed his destructive instincts and forced the referee to save Kwong.
Sadly for us, as Srisaket fans, the Thai lost his world title just a few months after this contest, dropping a technical decision in Mexico to Carlos Cuadras.
Here we include some of the best, most interesting, most exciting or most eye catching videos from around the Asian boxing world.
