MAHASARAKHAM, THAILAND - WBA super bantamweight world champion Poonsawat Kratingdaenggym from Thailand made a successful second defense of his title by scoring a brutal KO over Japanese challenger Shoji Kumura in Masaharakahm, Thailand Thursday night.
New Zealand referee Mr. Ferlin Marsh correctly spared Kimura from further punishment by halting actions at 2:23 of the 4th round.
From the beginning of intense battle, Poonsawat (41-1, 29 KOs) looked much faster, stronger, and aggressive than the brave Japanese challenger who was knocked down to the canvas two times during that torturous 4th round.
In contrast, Kimura (23-4-2, 9 KOs) was never able to mount any meaningful offensive that could counter the vicious, relentless attacks sent by the 5' 4½" Thailand fighter.
Right after the fight, the Thai’s manager Niwat Laosuwanwat, president of Galaxy Boxing Promotions announced an agreement with Golden Boy Promotions for the 29-years-old Poonsawat to fight before American audiences.
Their likely next target is former featherweight champion Steven Luevano (37-2-1, 15 KOs) in Las Vegas by the end of the year.
