In a nationally televised promotion, IBF#11 super flyweight Rusalee Samor (23-5-2, 10 KOs) was impressive as he clearly outscored Espinos Sabu (11-1-1, 5 KOs) over twelve rounds to retain the IBF Asian 115 pound title at the Wat Triatanakorn, Chaiya, Surat, Thani, Thailand on Friday. Samor controlled the action in most of the rounds to be awarded the decision on all cards by scores 115-112, 115-112, 115-112.
On undercard, Thailand based Japanese welterweight Takamori Akita (9-4-1, 6 KOs) stopped Muhammad Imam(9-4,3 KOs) in round one of scheduled twelve to capture the vacant IBF Asian title.
Former world rated 130 pounder Fahsai Sakkreerin (41-5-1, 22 KOs) outscored Rivo Renkung (32-19-5,12 KOs) over eight rounds. Sakkreerin suffered losses to Rances Barthélemy and Masao Nakamura in 2013 but was impressive in clearly outpointing
Also featherweight Patomsith Pathompothong (9-1, 4 KOs) stopped Rommy Wassar (8-16-7, 3 KOs) in round four of scheduled six.
Promoter Jimmy Chaichotchuang said, “Rusalee Samor was impressive in defeating previously unbeaten Indonesian boxer Espinos Sabu. Samor is ready to challenge for the world title in 2014. Also I am excited to manage and promote Japanese welterweight Takamori Akita who won IBF Asian title. Akita has good potential to be a world class boxer. He gave IBF rated light welterweight Patomsuk Pathompothong a very tough fight in 2013.”
