Unbeaten Heavyweights Khan of Pakistan, Agarwal of India Ready for ABF Title War in Thailand


PhilBoxing.com




In a battle of undefeated heavyweights, lethal 26-year-old Pakistani warrior "The Diamond Kid" Taimoor Khan (5-0, 4 KO's) of Islamabad (on the left), and equally rough 24-year-old Vedant Agarwal (5-0-1, 3 KO's) of Dwarka, India, can’t wait to get at each other for the Asian Boxing Federation (ABF) Heavyweight Title, a clash likely to end by knockout. But who will stop who?

The exciting match, organised by Filipino Brico Santig of Highland Boxing will unfold Wednesday, August 3, at the plush & starry SPACEPLUS Night Club, RCA Plaza, in the heart of Bangkok, Kingdom of Thailand.



The two warriors proudly waved their National flags, promising to ravage each other on fight night.

Khan weighed-in at 103 kilos, while Agarwal, who is also a model in India, came-in at exactly 100 kilos, both men looking strong and confident, ready for the first bell.

In another thrilling clash, policeman/middleweight boxer "The Markhor" Shahir Afridi (4-0-1, 1 KO) of Karachi, Pakistan weighed-in 72.3 kilos, while 22-year-old fast & furious Indian warrior Israr Usmani (6-1, 6 KO's) from the City of Agra in India, stepped-in at 70.5 kgs for the ABF Middleweight Title war.

Also, heavy-handed "Hulk" Nadir Baloch (10-1, 8 KO's) of Karachi, Pakistan, got 57.3 kilos for his rumble against Thai warrior Paiboon Lorkham who marked 57.2 kilos on the needle for their fight for the vacant Asian Boxing Federation (ABF) Featherweight Continental Strap, another saga, destined to ignite fireworks.

In a battle of unbeaten bantamweights, 22-year-old Filipino Herlan Gómez (4-0, 2 KO's) of Bacolod City and tough, 23-year-old Thai KO artist Sarawut Jiamthong (6-0, 6 KO's) showed themselves ready to collide hard in their non-title 6-rounder in the 118-pound weight-class.

Will the Filipino fighter emerge victorious? Or will the Thai vicious slugger the one to add another scalp to his perfect fighting record?

In cruiserweights, hard-hitting Rolly Lambert Fogoum (13-1-1, 11 KO's) of Bafoussam, Cameroon, made 90.2 kilos, while strong & fearless 29-year-old Thai Nattapon Plangpimai (16-2, 13 KO's) recorded 90.5 ahead of their battle for the vacant WBA Asia 200-lbs belt.

In another battle, promising 26-year-old Filipino "Striker" John Michael Zulueta (12-0-2, 8 KO's) of Bacolod trade bombs against 25-year-old Somphon Banyaem (6-6, 6 KO's) in a non-title 6-chapter light flyweight battle that might not make the distance.

In women's action, Hong Kong fighting girl Yang Shaen Ru battles Thai warrior-lady Panidda Pachai in a hot four-rounder clash in the 112-lbs weight class.

Furthermore, Spaniard-German cruiserweight Marvin Ruf will make his pro boxing debut by trading hard blows against more-experienced Pornwissanu Suwaros of Thailand in a 4-round clash.

And in another cruiserweight war, Irani fighter Pouriya Rokhneh (7-1, 5 KO's) of Tehran battles taller 25-year-old military man Nakhonchai Pantang of Samut Prakan, Thailand, in a non-title 6-frame war.

The first bout of the evening is an all-Thai war that unfolds in the 105-lbs division when Panuwit Chinpe takes on Thai compatriot Phissanu Chimsunthon in a non-title six-round saga.

The entertaining 10-bout international pro boxing show Wednesday evening at the SPACEPLUS Night Club, RCA Plaza in Bangkok is a production of award-winning Filipino promoter Brico Santig of Highland Boxing in association with Thai man of boxing Supanat Chanram, and Thai enterpreanur Tony Chen of the SPACEPLUS Night Club.

May the Best Men Win!
