In the main supporting contest hot 108 pound prospect Fahlan “Junior” Sakkreerin (17-2,12KO’s) stopped Toncer Manufoe ( 5-2) in round one.

Promoter Jimmy Chaichotchuang said, “Amnat Ruenroeng was impressive today with win over Michael Rodriguez who extended WBA 105 pound champion Pornsawan Porpramook in 2012 losing by decision. I am proud that Amnat Ruenroeng has become the first IBF Asia champion and I am confident he will be a future world champion. Fahlan Sakkreerin Jr has now won 17 fights with 12 KO’s and showed he could follow in his father’s footsteps and be a world champion.
