Former ABCO champion Rachamongkol Sor Ploenjit (8-1, 5 KOs) shocked the Korean crowd as he destroyed In-Suk Song (9-5, 4 KOs) in round six to capture the vacant WBC international featherweight title on Friday at the Citizen Hall, in Osan City, South Korea. The source reported that the Thai fighter mostly controlled the show and rapidly dropped the local fighter with a left uppercut in round two. After leading 39-36, 39-38, 39-38, following the 4 round scorecards announcement by the WBC rule, he speeded up his assaults and successfully floored his opponent again with a sharp left uppercut, forcing the referee to stop the bout in round six. Rachamongkol was a former Thai hot prospect who successfully captured the ABCO 122lb title in his fourth professional bout in May 2007. After retaining his regional title once, he unbelievably lost his belt to Filipino Ariel Delgado on the same year in December. With his surprising victory today, he will come back to be a Thai prospect in the featherweight division again, following WBC#4 WBO#15 Chonlatarn Or Piriyapinyo.
