IBF Pan Pacific bantamweight champion Thantong Kiattaweesuk (12-0) scored a impressive four round stoppage over 5 foot 10 inch Bogie Delada (13-2) at the Jiranakhon Stadium, Hatyai City, Sogkla Province, South Thailand on Friday. The rangy Delada scored with accurate combinations in round one but the champion found the range for his power combinations in round two and slowly chopped down his opponent. Kiattweesuk dropped Delada in round four and shortly after referee Yongsak Na Songkla saved the game for Delada from further punishment.

Promoter Jimm Chaichotchuang said: “I plan to have Kiattweesuk to train in Australia soon where he would give IBF/WBC/WBA super flyweight champion Vic Darchinyan some very tough sparring sessions. If he would have used Kiattaweesuk as a sparring partner for his IBF bantamweight challenge against Joseph Agbeko, I am sure he would have won the championship.”
In the co-main event, Bangkok University student Vacharakrit Senarn ((14-0) scored the biggest win of his career when he outpointed world rated featherweight Fahsai Sakkreerin (24-2) in an action packed contest lasting six rounds.
Jimmy Chaichotchuang said: “Senarn can defeat many of the best feathweights in the world including Billy Dib. Dib is a very skillful boxer, but Senarn can beat him I am sure. We are prepared to take the fight in his hometown of Sydney.”
In a junior bantamweight contest, Mike Tawatchai (14-0-1) punished durable Petch Por Thitma in all six rounds to take a clear decision.
