Chaloemporn, Tewa Kiram Make Weight for WBA ASIA 175 Belt in Thailand


PhilBoxing.com




Thai warriors Chaloemporn Sawatsuk (21-6, 14 KO's), and former world title challenger Tewa Kiram (43-1, 31 KO's) made identical weight of 175 pounds ahead of their collision for the vacant WBA ASIA Light Heavyweight Title tomorrow Saturday, December 19, in Bangkok, Kingdom of Thailand.

Both men arrived into their rumble with a focused winning mentality after scoring victories in regional Asian title fights, wanting to claim the WBA Asia crown, and a possible berth in the world rankings.

In his last outing, the heavy-tattooed Chaloemporn from Nakhon Sawan claimed the interim WBC Asia Silver Light Heavyweight strap; while his tough opponent, "The Buriram Warrior" Tewa Kiram, 28, defended his WBA ASIA 154-pound title.

The 32-year-old Chaloemporn has already battled at heavyweight. But this will be the very first time that Tewa Kiram fights at 175, which is twenty pounds north of the tonnage he made in his last combat a year ago.

Prior to that, Tewa Kiram battled for years as the unbeaten WBA Pan Asian welterweight champion, getting known by boxing fans worldwide for climbing into the ring against the now retired awesome slugger Lucas “The Machine” Matthysse for the WBA welterweight world title in 2018.

Kiram did not win against Matthysse, but displayed good boxing, slick moves and a tormenting jab. His loss to Matthysse has been Tewa Kiram’s one and only defeat in his 44-fight career.

Will climbing up in weight affect Kiram's speed and moves, making him a more reachable target to Chaloemporn attacks?

In fact, the two war-hardened fighters can strike hard if they land clean with full force, which prompts fans in Thailand to think that their rumble might not make the distance.

If so, who would knock out who?

The televised fight in Thailand is a production of legendary Thai promoter Niwat Laosuwanwat of Galaxy Boxing.
