Eto dethrones Kompayak in all out war

By Karl Freitag

Flyweight Koki Eto (14-2-1, 10 KOs) of Japan dethroned defending WBA interim flyweight titleholder Kompayak Porpramook (50-5, 35 KOs) of Thailand by close twelve round unanimous decision in a thrilling slugfest on Thursday afternoon in Bangkok, Thailand. The much taller Eto had a great first round and seemingly dropped Porpramook, but referee Mikael Hook somehow called it a slip. It was a toe-to-toe war after that with Eto choosing to brawl rather than utilize his reach advantage. With the result still in doubt, Eto went all out in round twelve and was credited with a knockdown in the final minute that won him the fight. Scores were 114-113 114-113 116-111. Had Eto not scored the knockdown, the bout would have ended in a draw and Kompayak would have retained his title.
