Sadly time constraints and real life have again meant that the "On This Day" piece has been left until late in the day and is unfortunately a weak one due to lack of research time.
On this day in 2008 we saw Thai great Chatchai Sasakul fight for the last time as he stopped Kondej Sithtrajtrakan in 5 rounds. This was Chatchai's 69th professional boxing contest and saw him leaving the sport with an impressive 65 wins, including 40 by stoppage. Aged 38 by the time of this bout Chatchai wasn't the fighter he once was and had actually suffered a stoppage defeat to Cristian Mijares just 3 months earlier, this win gave him a successful bout to retire on though he certainly was a long, long way removed from his prime which was in the late 1990's.
In 1998 another Thai great Saman Sorjaturong, successfully defended his WBC Light Flyweight title against Mexican challenger Ladislao Vazquez. The bout was to be Saman's 10th and final successful defense and was one of the closest with the Thai being somewhat fortunate that he was at home for the bout. Sadly following this win the Thai's career went down hill and he lost to every subsequent notable opponent, such as Yo Sam Choi and Koki Kameda.
