Poonsawat keeps WBA 122lb belt

By Joe Koizumi

WBA super-bantam champ Poonsawat Kratingdaeng-gym (40-1, 28 KOs), 122, Thailand, continually showed his persistent attack in the close range, displayed his abundant stamina and pounded out a majority but well-received decision over previously unbeaten Satoshi Hosono (16-1, 12 KOs), 122, over twelve see-saw rounds on Monday in Tokyo, Japan. The official tallies were as follows: Tom Miller (US) 115-113, Michael Lee (Korea) 117-113, both for the champ, and Raul Caiz Sr. (US) 114-114. The referee was Rafael Ramos (US). It looked like a couple of tiny bulls kept swapping punches from the outset to the end. But it was the more aggressive and energetic champ that dominated a bit more rounds by slight margins in a close affair. Poonsawat, three years his senior at 29, showed his experience and ring-craft in connecting with short left hooks and right uppercuts to the face with better precision than Hosono. (More to come)
