Earlier today we were informed that former 2-weight Sirimongkol Singwancha (87-2, 55) [ศิริมงคล สิงห์วังชา] would be returning to the ring on January 26th to take part in his 90th professional bout.
Whilst we were informed that Sirimongkol would be in action, and in fact that his bout would be shown on Channel 11 in Thailand, we were unfortunately not given his opponent, though we were told that the bout would be taking place for the ABF Middleweight title.
The Thai veteran, who began his career way back in 1994, will be looking to record his 6th win in the space of 12 months showing his impressive activity, even if the bouts are coming at a very low level. We suspect that this one will also be at a low level, though it's interesting that Sirimongkol will be fighting at 160lbs, some 42lbs above the weight that he won his first world title at, almost 20 years ago! Notably if he wins, this will be his 45th straight win.
