BANGKOK, Kingdom of Thailand ? Thai WBC 105-pounds World Champion Wanheng Menayothin (50-0, 18 KO's) makes the 10th defense his world title from the fast and furious fists of 21 year-old Filipino challenger Pedro "Rattle Snake" Taduran (12-1, 9 KO's) this Wednesday (Aug 29) here in Thailand.
It's a tough job for the young Pinoy southpaw born in the Bicol Province of Albay but Taduran is a brave warrior ready for the most difficult battle he could ever have dreamed of, a fight in which a win would change his life forever.
Will the young Pedro Taduran shock the boxing world by striking down his poisonous venom on the much more experienced Thai world champion Wanheng Menayothin, a man who has won all his fifty combats?
Or will the ring savvy and shrewdness of the Thai proved TOO MUCH for the young Pinoy fighter? 🧐
Philboxing.com will be in ringside to report; and May the Best Man Win.
The author Carlos Costa, 57, is a veteran Panama-born fight writer living permanently in the Philippines. Carlos will attend the Wanheng Menayothin vs Pedro Taduran WBC world title fight in Thailand.
From L to R: WBC champion Wanheng Menayothin, Thai WBC executive Surapote Phongjivanich and Filipino Challenger Pedro Taduran at BTV Channel 7 studios in Bangkok, Thailand.
