Niyomtrong Drops, Outclasses Tanaka to Retain WBA 105 Lbs Super Belt in Thailand


PhilBoxing.com




NAKHON SAWAN, Thailand -- Far more skilled, WBA Minimumweight "Super" Champion Thammanoon Niyomtrong (21-0, 7 KO's) of Thailand outclassed over twelve hot rounds spirited Japanese challenger Norihito Tanaka (19-8, 10 KO's) to retain his super belt on Tuesday, March 3, in the "Heavenly City" of Nakhon Sawan, Kingdom of Thailand.

From the getgo, the faster, more-effective, laser-focused Niyomtrong displayed to fans the boxing talent that has made him a "super champion" for the WBA by totally dominating the commendable effort of the Nippon warrior Tanaka (田中教仁), a former Japanese Minimumweight titlist.

In the third frame, a perfectly-delivered counter combination rocked the Japanese, sending him backwards ass-first to the canvas where top Las Vegas referee and former Air Force officer Mr. Robert Hoyle applied the mandatory count.

Niyomtrong, also a former Muay Thai champion, tried to end matters right there in the third.

But tough-as-nails Norihito Tanaka stood his ground, refusing to go down again, battling his heart out as a true and proud samurai warrior till the end of the scheduled twelve-frame conflict.

At the end, scores submitted by WBA supervisor Won Kim of South Korea were wide 119-108 and 120-107 (twice) in favor the 29-year-old Thammanoon Niyomtrong, one of the top fighters in the 105 pound division, handled by Thailand's legendary fight promoter Virat Vachirarattanawong, head of Petchyindee Boxing.

The battle was streamed and aired live on Thailand's Channel 7.
