IBF #12 super bantamweight Mike “Tyson” Tawatchai (32-7-1, 21 KOs) stopped Japan’s Yoichi Oguma (15-6, 3 KOs) in round two of scheduled twelve round main event at the Royal Thai Police Club, Bangkok Thailand on Friday. The 5’5 Tawatchai found the range in round two and dropped the 6-foot southpaw with a body shot and the referee Manfred Kuhler crowned the IBF regional champion from Thailand at 1:20. “Tawatchai has the power to win the IBF world 122 pound title,” said manager Jimmy Chaichotchuang. “We will go to Spain and KO the IBF champion Kiko Martinez. We only want the opportunity for Tawatchai.”
IBF #13 light welterweight Patomsuk Pathompothong (26-2-1, 17 KOs) scored a seventh round stoppage of Roy Tua Manihuruk (14-10-2, 11 KOs) in a scheduled eight-rounder. The powerful Thai boxer dominated the experienced Indonesian and at 2:37 of round seven the referee crowned Pathompothong the winner. “It is good to see Patomsuk winning again after losing a disputed split decision against Japanese welterweight Takayuki Hosokawa in October,” said manager Jimmy Chaichotchuang
