Yodmongkol Vor Saengthep (34-3, 20) vs Pongpan Pattanakarngym (0-5)*
In 2013 Yodmongkol Vor Saengthep claimed the WBA interim Flyweight title with an excellent win over Koki Eto. That win was an outstanding one though unfortunately in his first defense Yodmongkol got a bit lucky to over-come Takuya Kogawa in a 2014 FOTY contender. To end last year Yodmongkol came up short against Juan Carlos Reveco in WBA unification bout. Those 3 hard fights were damaging and when Yodmongkol fought for the first time in 2015 there was no issue with him being matched easily as he took on Pongpan Pattanakarngym. The bout was supposed to be a walk in the park but things weren't as easy as expected and Pongpan didn't get in the ring to just make up the numbers.
Note-We believe Pongpan's record is 0-5, though that may be the name of a very similarly named fighter
