On this day...
2015-Knockout CP Freshmart (16-0, 7) Vs Toto Landero (10-1-2, 2)
Thailand's Knockout CP Freshmart made his 4th defense of the WBA Minimumweight as he over-came Filipino challenger Toto Landero. The Filipino put up a much better than the scorecards suggest, but it was a fair win for Knockout who still holds the title today, having made 2 more defenses of the belt and solidified his place as one of the best in the division.
2004-Veeraphol Sahaprom (40-1-2, 27) v Toshiaki Nishioka (23-3-3, 14) IV
The 4th and final meeting between Thai great Veeraphol Sahaprom, the then WBC Bantamweight champion, and Toshiaki Nishioka, a future WBC Super Bantamweight champion, took place on this day in 2004. Sadly for Nishioka he would again come up short against the Thai great, who went unbeaten against Nishioka during their 4 fight series. Veeraphol, who won 2 and drew 2 against his Japanese foe, would actually lose the title 13 months later, when he lost to Hozumi Hasegawa. As for Nishioka he would finally claim a world title in late 2008.
On the same show Oscar Larios (50-3-1, 35 at the time) would defend the WBC Super Bantamweight title against Shigeru Nakazato (24-6, 18 at the time) and Julio Zarate (20-2-1, 13) would defeat Hideki Todaka (21-3-1, 10) in a WBA "interim" Bantamweight title bout.
1993-Pichit Sithbanprachan (15-0, 12) vs Antonio Perez (37-3-4, 24)
Unbeaten Thai Pichit Sithbanprachan made his first defense of the IBF Flyweight title when he scored a 4th round TKO win over experienced Mexican Antonio Perez. The Mexican was holding his own prior to the stoppage, but Sithbanprachan was too strong and when he got going he would stop Perez. Perez would later return to Thailand to challenge Saman Sorjaturong in 1996, losing in 4 rounds to the then WBC Light Flyweight champion. Sithbanprachan on the other hand would record 4 more defenses before retiring, then he mounted a couple of short comebacks before walking away with a 24-0 (18) record.
