According to news from Thailand Parinya Khaikanha (1-0, 1), the younger brother for Suriyan Sor Rungvisai and Nawaphon Por Chokchai, will be fighting in his first title bout on March 6th.
The unbeaten 23 year old is reportedly set to fight for the ABF Minimumweight title, in a bout that will be aired on Channel 3SD.
Today Parinya and Suriyan took part in a training session, and whilst the youngster is certainly smaller than Suriyan he did look like a good prospect, as he did on his debut.
Parinya actually debuted on New Year's Eve, stopping Saran Maliwan (0-1) in 2 rounds. This bout was an obscure one, and saw Parinya fighter with a "Tor Bumas" name, though we've not managed to get the first part of his name. It seems he impressed given how quickly his team are wanting to push into a title bout.
