Thailand?s WBO Asia Pacific featherweight champion Chonlatarn Piriyapinyo lived up to his lofty WBC No.1 and WBO No.2 rankings to score a 6th round TKO over Filipino journeyman Randy Megrino in Thailand Wednesday.
The undefeated Piriyapinyo improved his unbeaten record to 43-0 with 26 knockouts while Megrino dropped to 12-10-2 with 7 knockouts.
WBO Asia Pacific vice president Leon Panoncillo told the Manila Standard that Chonlatarn was ?very precise with his punches and dominated tough journeyman Megrino, stopping him in the sixth round.? The time was 2:39.
The Thai champion?s promoter Pariyakorn Ratanasuban in a post fight interview said that negotiations are underway for a title shot against either WBC champion Johnny Gonzalez or WBO champion Orlando Salido.
The 27 year old Piriyapinyo was coming off four successive knockout victories while the 23 year old Megrino won a majority decision in a four round bout against Gabriel Royo who hadn?t won a fight and had a 0-4 record. That fight took place last October 16.
Megrino had also previously lost by a 9th round knockout in an IBF Pan Pacific super featherweight title fight against another top Thai, Fahsai Sakkreerin on June 17, 2011.
Piriyapinyo won the vacant WBO Asia Pacific title with an 8th round TKO over Filipino Sonny Gonzales on Septremnber 15, 2010 and in his last defense won by a 4th round TKO over Arief Blader of Indonesia on January 23, 2012.
