Former world rated featherweight Fahsai Sakkreerin (29-0) chopped down Indonesian junior lightweight champion Eddy Comaro (23-9-4) in eight rounds in a nationally televised IBF Pan Pacific title bout at the Chaopraya Park Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand on Friday. Comaro connected often with right hands on Sakkreerin early in the fight but the Thai was never in trouble at any stage of the contest. Sakkreerin delivered accurate left jabs, rips and hooks consistently that began to take its toll on the tough Indonesian by round six. In round seven Comaro was looking distressed by the consistent bombardment of leather and at the conclusion of round eight the corner of Comaro wisely retired their boxer.

Murray Wilson, the co-manager of Yuri Foreman died of a heart attack in his office on Wednesday. There are only good things to say about Murray. He was a classic New York guy. He was the owner of Campagnola’s, a popular restaurant in the Upper East Side where everybody wanted a seat. The thing I want to say about Murray is that he was my good friend, and he always will be. I will miss him dearly.
His funeral will take place Sunday, October 17, 2010 at 12 noon.
