Former WBC Light Flyweight world champion Kompayak Porpramook (50-4, 35) successfully claimed the WBA "interim" Flyweight title as he stopped former title holder Jean Piero Perez (20-6-1, 14) in the 6th round of a scheduled 12.
The fight actually started quite well for much taller Perez who used his jab effectively and maintained a safe distance using his legs. It wouldn't take long however for Porpramook to start cutting the distance and getting in to the pocket where he was able to land his powerful blows.
With Porpramook knowing he could walk through the shots of Perez the bout became a matter of time as Perez worked incredibly hard to create distance from the dogged and determined Thai. The intelligent pressure of Porpramook's work was tiring out Perez who started every round well before Porpramook would catch up to him and launch a strong attack late.
The attack of the Thai in round 5 really did seem to spell the end for Perez who saw out the round but was starting to look like a man losing heart and it showed in the following round. Porpramook started round 6 fast and rocked the Venezuelan early before forcing the referee to come in and save the now badly hurt Perez.
With the WBA "interim" title now around his waist Porpramook is the only Thai fighter with a recognised "world" title currently around his waist. Aged 30 and with 54 bouts on his record he's certainly an "old" fighter for the Flyweight division though he's still as determined and as exciting as ever.
