Earlier today we were informed of a Thai show set for January 22nd. Although didn't get all the details regarding the card we did get some of the most notable details.
The highest profile fighter in action is former WBC Super Flyweight champion Srisaket Sor Rungvisai (37-4-1, 34) who is going to take part in a stay busy bout ahead of rematch with current WBC Super Flyweight champion Carlos Cuadras (34-0-1, 26) [ศรีสะเกษ นครหลวงโปรโมชั่น]. Although we're not sure who Srisaket will be fighting we have been informed that it will be an Indonesian opponent.
The other fighter is unbeaten Flyweight contender Nawaphon Por Chokchai (31-0, 24) [นวพล นครหลวงโปรโมชั่น] who is fighting in a stay busy bout himself, at 115lbs, whilst waiting for the WBC to force current WBC Flyweight champion, Roman Gonzalez, to face him in a mandatory bout. The Thai, who is the mandatory for the Nicaraguan sensation, appears to believe that a bout with Gonzalez will be taking place Stateside but will stay active until the bout is made. Sadly we're unsure who Nawaphon will be up against.
