On this day...
1985-Min Keun Oh vs Irving Mitchell
Korean fighter Min Keun Oh may well have one of the oddest reigns in Featherweight title history. He won the IBF Featherweight title in March 1084, against a debutant, defended it against the very limited Kelvin Lampkin 3 months later. It was another 10 months before he returned for his second defense, taking on Irving Michell on April 7th 1985. Mitchell was the only decent fighter fight Oh successfully defended the title against, taking a razor thin decision over the American. By decent we do mean decent, Mitchell had a 25-1 going into the bout. Sadly after the bout Mitchell would go 10-9-2, retiring 35-11-2. Thankfully Oh's reign as champion would end 7 months later when Ki Young Chung stopped him.
1991-Khaosai Galaxy vs Je Suk Park
Thai legend Khaosai Galaxy retired at the end of 1991. Prior to that he had etched his name in the history books as one of the most dominating and hard hitting Super Flyweights in history with a long reign as the WBA champion. One of his final defenses saw him take on Korean challenger Je Suk Park. Galaxy would stop the Korean in the 5th round to retain his title and make his 17th defense
2004-Pongsaklek Wonjongkam Vs Luis Angel Martinez
The legendary Pongsaklek Wonjongkam made his 10th defense of the WBC Flyweight title when he took on Luis Angel Martinez. The Mexican challenger was one of the worst challengers to face Wonjongkam and was stopped in 5 rounds, beginning a run of 5 straight stoppages losses for Martinez, who last fought in 2012 and retired with a 14-11-2 (5) record. As for Wonjongkam he would defend the title for the following 3 years, before losing his third bout with Daisuke Naito in July 2007.
