Earlier this year we saw Thailand's criminally under-rated Fahlan Sakkreerin Jr (23-4-1, 15) come incredibly close to winning the IBF Minimumweight title, with only a poor call by the referee essentially costing him a TKO win against Katsunari Takayama (29-7-0-1, 11). Despite a strong effort from the Kiatkreerin team to force a rematch the IBF decided not to go with them and instead have allowed Takayama to fight a voluntary, albeit a tough one against countryman Ryuji Hara (19-1, 11).
The Takayama/Hara bout takes place this coming Sunday in Osaka and although the Thai won't be involved in that bout Kiatkreerin have booked Fahlan for a bout, on separate show, on the same day.
Earlier today Kiatkreerin released a hype video for Fahlan's bout, which sees him take on Oscar Raknafa (12-10, 5) in what looks like a safe "stay busy" fight for Fahlan.
We suspect that if Fahlan wins on Sunday his team will again push for a world title bout, with the winner of the Takayama/Hara contest and in all honesty we wouldn't mind seeing that one in 2016, if a unification bout in the division cannot be made.
This hype video focuses on Fahlan's bout, and the controversial ending, against Takayama and it's clear to see that Kiatkreerin are still unhappy about the result from that bout.
