One of a number of Thai fighters coming through the professional ranks right now is Kongputorn CPFreshmart who recently began boxing professionally after a very successful Muay Thai career. Having started his career in June, with a victory over Veeradej Manoprungroj, Kongputorn has already scored 3 victories.
Kongputorn's third bout saw him battling against China's Zhu Yuan Kai and for the first time in his short career Kongputorn was taken the distance as he successfully claimed the WBC Youth Flyweight with a clear decision victory.
On paper it as a "poor result" being taken 10 by his unknown Chinese opponent though in reality doing 10 rounds this early in his career will have done Kongputorn the world of good and really should help him prove to his team that he can be matched with better opponents than what he has been in with so far. There is a lot to like about him and showed it again here.
Whilst Kongputorn's future may not be as "the face" of Thai boxing he certainly has the potential to go very far and we home he manages to live up to that potential, especially considering what he showed here.
