Sometimes details for fights in Thailand are scarce, tricky and come very late on. Today we got one such example as we were informed that Onesongchai would be putting on a televised show this coming Friday. Not only were details late to be released from the promoter but they were also fairly scarce.
What we do know is that the show will be broadcast on Thai channel on Friday from 14:00 local time, with a 2 hour time slot. We also know the main attractions.
One of the two big name attractions is former 2-time world title challenger Chonlatarn Piriyapinyo (54-2, 35), who will be defending his WBO Asia Pacific Featherweight title. His opponent is said to be an African visitor though we're unsure who.
The other notable attraction is the once beaten Kwanpichit Onesongchaigym (29-1-2, 14), who is facing a mystery opponent himself.
Although neither Thai is a big name outside of their homeland both were famously showcased in big bouts in Macau, where we saw Zou Shiming and Vasyl Lomachenko scoring wide decision wins over the two men. Despite those losses both men will be seeking their third win in a row.
