One of the most promising young Thai's was in action today as well as a former world champion who appears to be slowly but surely working his way back up to another world title bout.
At the show, held at Ayutthaya Park the main attraction was Welterweight prospect Teerachai Kratingdaenggym (19-0, 14) a powerful 21 year old who has held one version (or another) of the PABA Welterweight title since his 6th professional bout. He defended his belt once more stopping the poor Filipino challenger Ronnel Esparas (10-10-1, 2) who seemed quit after being caught with a body shot in round 3. Although Esparas jumped up at the count of 9 it was obvious that he wanted to get out of there and the referee made the correct decision of waving the bout off.
It's fair to say that Teerachai has out grown the belt and needs to look for opponents outside of Asia. Unless he can get a fight with Yoshihiro Kamegai there is honestly little left for him in Asia and with his talent, size and strength he could well be a big attraction stateside, especially as the division over there will see him in more competitive match ups than this one.
The chard also featured former WBA Minimumweight champion Kwanthai Sithmorseng (41-1-1, 20) who scored his 10th straight victory since being defeated by Muhammad Rachman back in April 2011 (almost 2 years to the day in fact). Sithmorseng has the talent to win another world title with careful match making though it's great he's being kept active even if it is facing weak opponents.
The rest of the card was all with relatively unknown fighters. Chatpetch Sithmorseng (2-2, 1) scored a second round TKO over Kaolankao Kaolanlek Gym (0-2), the unbeaten Amin Sor Wangmoo (2-0-1, 2) scored a 6th round stoppage over Chatchai Sithsaithong (8-3, 6) whilst debuting pair Stamp Kiatniwat (1-0) and Jaokhumphol Kaolanlek Gym (0-1) fought to a 6 round decision.
