On April 10th the JBC updated their banned invited boxer list and added the name of Thai teenager Chatchai Sithsaithong (8-5, 6). The 17 year old, who ought against Cobra Suwa on April 8th, was listed alongside the reason for the ban. Unlike many it wasn't a lack of ability or a poor effort but a much more worrying reason, a suspected subarachnoid hemorrhage.
From what we understand the Thai visitor was suspect as having the brain bleed after the fight though very little information has been revealed so far.
We'd like to send our wishes to Chatchai, real name Chat Chimma, who has now lost 5 bouts in a row after an 8-0, start. It seems clear that his handlers, family and friends need to do the right thing and keep him from getting in the ring again
