Former Beijing 2008 Olympian, Amnat Ruenroeng (9-0,3 KOs) was impressive in dominating Julius Alcos (20-11) over twelve rounds, winning by scores of 120-108, 120-108, 120-108 to retain the IBF Asia flyweight title at Wat Trirattankorn school, Chaiya, Thailand on Friday. IBF#14 Ruenroeng out worked Alcos in all the rounds connecting consistently with accurate combinations on the experienced Filipino opponent.
Leading IBF promoter Jimmy Chaichotchuang said “Ruenroeng showed his outstanding amatuer background as 2007 silver medalist in world championships and 2008 Olympian has helped him become a world class professional and will be ready to win the world title in 2014. I will keep Ruenroeng active as he is very popular boxer in Thailand with all his professional fights being televised throughout Thailand on channel seven. Amnat will be world champion.”
In the main supporting bout former world rated flyweight Rusalee Samor (20-4-2) stopped Luis Loemoli (4-8-1) in round four of a scheduled eight round contest. Samor now boxing at 115 pounds was to strong for Loemoli and forced the stoppage in round four.
Hot 108 pound prospect Fahlan Sakkreerin junior (18-2) outscored Madit Sada (4-10) in a crowd pleasing eight round bout.
