Former WBC title challenger Suriyan Por Chokchai (15-5-1, 4 KOs) successfully grabbed the vacant WBC Asian Boxing Council (ABCO) 112lb title as he won a unanimous decision over WBC #17 lightfly Takashi Kunishige (21-5-2, 2 KOs) on Friday at the Auditorium of Rajabhat University in Srisaket province, Thailand. After a close affair in the first four rounds, the show little by little turned to the Thai fighter who displayed more accurate punches, especially with a right straight. In round nine, Suriyan successfully dropped the Japanese fighter with a bodyshot although it was protested by Kunishige as a slip. After that it was an easy job for the local fighter to control the show and sweep all of last three rounds. All scorecards were 119-108.

In the other co-main event, two-time WBC title challenger Napapol Kiettisakchokchai (51-3-1, 43 KOs) scored a six round TKO over ABCO #2 Hirotsugu Yamamoto (10-5-2, 2 KOs) to capture the vacant ABCO 130lb title. Yamamoto did well in the opening round as he landed a right hook which almost dropped the Thai fighter. But after that Napapol used his body attack tactic which effectively weakened Yamamoto and gained the score back from round three. Toe-to-toe action excitingly continued to round six and it was Napapol winning when the referee terminated the bout at 2:31 to save the Japanese fighter from a one-sided assault.

In other action, ABCO superfly title holder Yodchanchai Nakornluang (reportedly 6-2,5 KOs) stopped Yuta Nakagawa (5-2,3 KOs) in round five of a six round non-title bout.

ABCO#1 superfly Sugar Rey Nakornluang (9-0,6 KOs) scored a fifth round TKO over Pongsak Por Thitima.

And ABCO#9 fly Srisaket Sor Rungvisai (5-1,5 KOs) destroyed Japanese Okamitsu Takeshi in the opening round.

This event was promoted by Nakornluang Boxing Promotion.
