In May 2005 Takashi Uchiyama (0-0) made his professional debut, fighting at Korakuen Hall against Thai visitor Chandet Sithramkamhaeng (0-1). The bout isn't a very high profile one, but is one we felt deserved our attempt at giving the fight some English Language commentary.
The bout is a short one but a great way to see how Uchiyama kicked off his legendary career that ended up with him having a lengthy reign as the WBA Super Featherweight champion.
Interestingly the one fight on Chandet's record prior to this bout had come against Pungluang Sor Singyu, who also went on to become a world champion.
Some things don't fit in elsewhere on the site so have been put here as a result.
