Earlier today there were two cards in the world of Asian boxing, one in Thailand and one in Yemen. Of the two it's the one in Thailand we'll be looking at first thanks to the appearance of a 2-time world champion.
The aforementioned former world champion was Thai veteran Sirimongkol Singmanasak (73-2, 45) who took out the debuting Nicolas Lamise (0-1) in the 3rd of 6 scheduled rounds.
The former WBC Bantamweight and Super Featherweight champion, who's almost 10 years from his last loss, has now racked up 30 successive victories and would perhaps be wanting one more big fight before his career is over.
On the same card in Thailand we had 4 other bouts, 3 of which were scheduled for 6 rounds with the main event being an 8 round contest. These 6 round contests saw an opening round stoppage for Chalermpol Singnumpattana (2-0, 2) over Yannis Belacel (0-1), a 3rd round stoppage for Kajornsak Sithsaithong (3-1, 3) over Mohammad Suka (0-1) and a 6th round stoppage for the experienced Kiatchai Singwancha (34-10, 23) who stopped Yodmongkol Singmanasak (11-12-1, 7)
In the main event Kongjak Por Pao-in (2-0) out pointed Thai based Iranian Mohamadreza Hamze (3-4).
Over in Yemen the card didn't feature a notable name like Sirimongkol Singmanasak but in all honesty it did feature more competitive bouts.
The 8 bout show in Yemen featured 4 bouts scheduled for the 4 round distances, only 1 of which actually went the distance as Ismael Elias (1-1) shut out Younis Dolbhant (0-2).
In the undercard's early finishes the debuting Akram Jafwi (1-0, 1) stopped Ahmed Nasser (0-2); Omar Moxamad (2-0, 1) stopped Ahmad Sabra (0-2) and Mawj Abdulrezak (3-3, 1) stopped Salem Hasani (0-2).
The 10 round bouts also saw 3 stoppages from the 4 contests. The quickest of these came in the bout between Luway Jaber (2-2, 2) and Hasan Wesabi (1-2) with Wesabi being stopped in just 54 seconds. This was followed by a second round stoppage for Esayas Dagim (2-0, 1) over Esam Aunfi (2-2, 1) and a 3rd round stoppage for Yaser Ali (4-1, 4) against Mohammad Saleh (2-3).
The only one of the 10 round contests to actually go the distance saw the unbeaten Yasin Abdulkhalik (6-0, 3) take a very clear shut out over Khaled Maweri (1-2).
