Former world rated Fahsai Sakkreerin (28-2, 18 KOs) was impressive in scoring a fifth round knockout over Indonesian Sony Fony (7-4, 2 KOs) at the Por Kungpao Seafood Restaurant in Bangkok, Thailand on Friday. Fony had a good round one but by round four Sakkreerin found the range for his solid combinations. At 23 second of round five, referee Somsak Sirianant counted Fony out after Sakkreerin had delivered a perfectly timed left rip to the body followed by a left hook to the head. “Sakkreerin will be in the ring later this year with tough Australian featherweight Davey Browne,” said promoter Jimmy Chaichotchuang.
“Browne gave former world champion Billy Dib a very tough fight in 2009 and will be a good test for Sakkreerin who is a tough fight also,” Chaichotchuang continued. “I am also interested in bringing Australian bantamweight champion Fred Mundraby to Thailand to challenge my world rated Tantong Kiattaweesuk. We have English boxing trainer Rian Munton working with the my boxers and I am sure he will assist in their improvement in their future fights. It was good to be working with international boxing agent Sugagah Rambing of Indonesia who is the son of Sultan Rambing and the brother of recently deceased Temuzin Rambing who has an outstanding reputation in boxing in their country.”
On the undercard featherweight Vacharkrit Senahan (2-0-3-1) scored a fifth round stoppage over Ivan Bone (3-7-1) when the ringside doctor ruled the import unfit to continue because he had injured his arm after missing with a punch. The Thai boxer was controlling the action at the time of the stoppage.
Lightweight Patomsuk Pathompotong (6-0) outscored Sindej Sakpothong (0-1) in a four round action contest.
Welterweight Kaono Pothonggym won a close four round decision over Ekapop Bangkokthounbri in crowd pleasing bout.
