Tanes, Jakrawut Make Weight For WBA Asia 112lbs War in Bangkok


PhilBoxing.com




Thailand’s world-ranked WBA #7 Flyweight Tanes Ongjunta (9-1, 4 KO's), standing on the far right, and the more-experienced Jakrawut Majungoen "a.k.a. Kongfah CPF" (41-1, 20 KO's), made weight ahead of their 10-rounder war for the WBA Asia 112lbs Strap Saturday, May 7, at the Bazaar Hotel in Bangkok, Kingdom of Thailand.

The hot clash is the main event of "The Fighter" boxing series produced by promoter Taweesin Laosuwanwat live in Thailand on WP TV Channel 23.

In the co-feature, tough Thitisak Hoitong (3-0, 2 KO's) of the TanTelecom Gym lock horns against young, hard-hitting Kitidech Hirunsuk (8-1, 5 KO's), in a ten-chapter clash for the vacant WBA Asia Light Flyweight Title; fans wondering who will knock out who to claim the shinning belt?

Also in the card, world-ranked WBA #14 super flyweight Nattapong Jankaew (9-0, 5 KO's), a.k.a, "Som TanTelecom" squares off veteran Worawatchai Boonjan a.k.a. "Phupha Por Nobnom" in a 6-rounder action match.

Will Nattapong ravage Worawatchai, or will the brave jorneyman deliver to him the biggest shock of his life?

The promising Nattapong Jankaew, 25, is the reigning WBA Asia 115-pound champion, although his belt will not be on the line Saturday as his handlers consider a possible WBA Asia/WBC Asia unification rumble of Nattapong against hard-swinging Filipino Adrian Lerasan (11-4, 4 KO's) of the Highland Boxing Team.

In another exciting sugfest, unbeaten 115-pounder Yuttapong Tongdee (6-0, 4 KO's) trades heavy artillery against Lerdchai Chaiyawed (6-7, 2 KO's) in a six-stanza match in the super flyweight division.



Two more fights will complete the exciting afternoon of boxing in Bangkok, a thrilling time that cannot be missed.

The live broadcast airs on WP TV Channel 23 from 2 PM to 3:45 PM (Thailand Time UTC + 7).

Boxing fans outside of Thailand may watch the show online for free on "The Fighter Thailand" Facebook page:

May the Best Man Win!
