Australian welterweight Steve Maxwell (8-3, 6 KOs) dropped Yodmongkol Singmanasak (11-9-1, 7 KOs) for the full ten count in round five of a scheduled ten round bout to retain the WBC (ABC) 147 pound title at the Coburg Town Hall in Melbourne, Victoria Australia on Friday. Singmanasak was down in round one. The Thai boxer had visited Australia previously when he was stopped in four rounds by former amateur silver medal winner in world titles Dilshod Mahmudov who is now based in Australia. Maxwell’s best win came in 2010 when he defeated Heath Ellis.
