Wethya Sakmuangklang (37-2, 27) Vs Guty Espadas Jr (32-2, 20)
In 2000 Wethya Sakmuangklang fought for the first time outside of Asia, and just his second time outside of Thailand, as he traveled to Mexico and took on WBC Featherweight champion Guty Espadas Jr. The men went into the bout with similar looking records but for the Thai the bout was a step up with his previous best opponent being fellow Thai Roongsurin Lookongchan.
Incidentally Wethya would later fight another notable name, Manny Pacquiao, and would go on to have a solid run as the OPBF Super Bantamweight champion.
Here we include some of the best, most interesting, most exciting or most eye catching videos from around the Asian boxing world.
