WBC strawweight champion Oleydong Sithsamerchai (31-0,12 KOs) successfully retained his WBC title as he impressively defeated former IBF 105lb champion Muhammed Rachman (62-8-5, 31 KOs) on Friday at Bangla Stadium in Patong, Phuket, Thailand. The Thai fighter mostly displayed his effective counterpunches to deny the Indonesian’s aggression and dominated at least seven of ten rounds. Accidental headbutts twice in round seven and round eleven rendered the challenger unable to continue so the fight was sent to the technical decision. Although the uncut champion was deducted two points by the WBC rule and regulation in case of accidental clash, he was comfortably ahead on the 106-101, 105-103, 105-103 scorecards. Oleydong, who has occupied his WBC belt since November 2007, retained his title for the third time.
In other action, WBC#6 lightfly Noknoi Sitthiprasert (22-4-1, 15 KOs) dropped Indonesian Adi Nukung once in round five before he won a unanimous decision and retained his WBC youth 108lb title for the twelfth time. WBC #1 fly Panomroonglek Kratingdaenggym (26-0,14 KOs) won a six round unanimous decision over Indonesian Danny Sultan. Former WBC flyweight champion Medgoen Kratingdaenggym (62-5, 44 KOs) outpointed Wanpadejsuk Sithsaithong in a six round non-title bout. And Liempetch Sor Veerapol outpointed Sornsak Korat Sportschool in a six round non-title bout. This event was promoted by Petchyindee Boxing Promotion.
