Thailand-based Australian promoter Daniel Potter has opened a world class gymnasium in Bangkok, Thailand that will be the training venue for his boxers which include former WBA 130 pound champion Yodsanan Sor Nanthachai (58-3-1, 47 KOs) and former world rated 140 pounder Saddam Kietyongyuth (18-0, 14 KOs) also recently signed world rated bantamweight Leon Moore (25-2, 22 KOs) of Georgetown, Guyana. The gymnasium features two full size boxing rings and the latest boxing equipment on the four floor venue. Boxers will have their own accommodation on the third floor of the four floor gym.

Potter said, “We are confident that Leon Moore who has signed with our promotional company, can win a world title and we will give him that opportunity as soon as possible. He defeated former IBF 108 pound champion Mauricio Pastrana in September which was a very good win.

“Our 140 pound boxer Saddam Kietyongyuth, 26 years, is a outstanding talent. He has been out of action for several months due to injury but he will be back in action soon. He also looks to be a future world champion.

“Former world WBA super featherweight champion Yodsanan Sor Nantachai is back training and will fight soon. He has had a great career defeating such outstanding boxers as Steve Forbes, Lamont Pearson and Lakva Sim in WBA title bouts. We will welcome boxers from around the world to train out our gym.”
