This coming week Thai fans have a lot to look forward too with a pair of notable rematches, the second of which is set to take place on February 5th. That bout will see WBA "interim" Flyweight champion Stamp Kiatniwat (14-0, 6) [ขวัญไทย ศิษย์หมอเส็ง] defending his crown against the man he beat for the belt, Gregorio Lebron (13-3, 11).
Earlier today we were informed that Lebron was in Thailand for the bout and was said to be having "no problems at all" with his weight being on target and the accommodation being suitable as he continued to put the finishing touches to his preparation.
At the moment the fighter is about 3KG's over the limit but is expected to shed that with ease by Thursday's weigh in and he seems confident with his team seemingly wanting their man to chase a KO and take the result away from the judges, who they blamed for losing the first bout.
In regards to the judges all 3 here will be neutral with the judges named as Gustavo Jarquin, from Nicaragua, South African Stanley Christodoulou and American Derek Milham whilst the referee will be Raul Caiz Jr, who was a judge in their first bout scoring that contest a draw.
