The boxing action once again kicked off early in the day in Asia with the first televised card of the long weekend taking place in Thailand.
As it the case with Thai cards, we've struggled to identify the undercards fighters. We know the tlelevised card kicked off with a knockout though unfortunately we've no idea who the two men were, though the knockout it's self certainly looked a little bit suspect with the loser seemingly going down from either a jab or a delayed reaction to a body shot.
Thai Olympian Amnat Ruenroeng (11-0, 5) successfully defended his IBF Asia Flyweight title for the second time as he defeated an out classed Japanese challenger, Takuro Habu (11-8-2, 3). Ruenroeng scored 2 knockdowns with the referee stopping the bout after the second which came from a lovely combination of hard shots by Ruenroeng.
Unfortunately there were worrying scenes after the fight with the stricken Japanese fighter looking very much out of it for a few moments.
After the IBF Asia title fight there was another televised bout as Thailand's Fahlan Sakkreerin Jr (22-2, 14) over came Filipino Wilber Andogan (9-12-4, 3) in a genuinely entertaining scrap that went to decsion.
The televised card finished with an entertaining female bout, though again the names aren't currently available. The opening round was a pretty good round of boxing though the second round appeared to float into the realms of MMA with a bit of entertaining wrestling. By round 3 however it was one way traffic and the referee made the right decision to call an early end to proceedings.
As well as the televised show in Thailand there was also an 8 fight show in Yemen.
The show started with a successful debut for Faud Aidrus (1-0) who defeated fellow debutant Fahmi Roeni (0-1) via a 4th round decision. Aidrus and Roeni were two of a trio of debutants with Saber Wareeth (1-0, 1) stopping Hamed Al Bukhaiti (0-2) in the second round.
Much of the early action on the show so early stoppages with Bahr Slyman (2-2, 1) stopping Abdu Akhfash (0-2) in the second, Othman Qasim (5-0, 2) taking out Sameer Raymi (0-2) in round 3, Halim Dolbhante (1-1, 1) stopping Hamdan Jaber (0-2) in round 3 and Abdu Sameer (5-1, 1) defeating Salem Khamees (0-2) in the fourth.
Alongside the 6 bouts scheduled for 4 rounds there were also 2 bouts fought over the 10 round distance. The lesser of these bouts saw Saeed Asam (2-2, 1) narrowly over-come Khaled Sulaym (1-2) via a razor thin split decision.
The second of the 10 round contests saw Moxamad Abdu (4-1, 2) over-coming Alwan Hawshabi (3-2, 1) via a clear decision.
