The post-Christmas return to boxing, at least in Asia, is rather slow this year, though we do have a show this coming Tuesday in Thailand.
Rangsit International Stadium, Rangsit, Thailand
The card, put on by Petpiya Fight is certainly not a big one, but is it headlined by someone who has got the potential to mix at a high level, as Petch CP Freshmart (62-1, 46) takes on Petchnamnung Sithsaithong (16-17, 9). The bout will see Petch make his third defense of the WBC Asian Boxing Council Silver Bantamweight title, as he continues to try and secure himself a world title fight. Whilst Petch was made to look second rate in his biggest fight to date, losing to Takuma Inoue, he has proven he has heart, determination, work rate and the tools to be a handful. As for Petchnamnung this really should be little more than his 18th loss, and likely his 11th by stoppage.
