Nawaphon vs. Ugbaniel

Nawaphon easily disposes of Filipino Ugbaniel. The Thai was just too big and strong for the Filipino. A seriously low punch in the second badly hurt Ugbaniel and he was taking punishment in the third when he went down and was counted out. The 23-year-old WBC No 1 has 22 wins by KO/TKO and this was the 14th defence of his WBC ABC title but as with many Thai’s he has climbed up by fighting down with not a single rated fighter on his record. Ugbaniel had been knocked out inside a round by Melvin Gumban for the GAB title in January.

Pongsaklek vs. Kongfah

This is not the Pongsaklek who was such a great WBC fly champion. This one did not just fail to read the script he tore it up and threw it in the bin. He outboxed the house fighter and ended his unbeaten run. Pongsaklek turned pro in 2009 with a loss then had just one fight in 2010 and one in 2013 and lost them both. He returned to action last April and this is his third win since then but all of his 5 previous opponents had only 4 fights between them so it should have been an easy fight for the 22-0 Kongfah. However I have mentioned before how crude and wide open Kongfah is so this was always a possibility.

Srisaket vs. Amisa

Srisaket gets another inside the distance win as waits for a chance to regain the WBC title. He overwhelmed Amisa who protested the stoppage but was only going to get an even worse beating as the fight progressed. The 28-year-old Thai has lost only one of his last 35 fights and has 32 wins by KO/TKO. That loss was on a technical decision against Carlos Cuadras in May last year and it cost him his WBC title. He has kept busy with 7 wins in a row by KO/TKO including an impressive fourth round stoppage of Jose Salgado. Diminutive Indonesian Amisa is 1-22 in his last 23 fights.

Suriyan vs. Tanaka

Disgraceful mismatch sees Suriyan take a while to sort out the much taller Japanese novice who showed guts but little else before being halted in the fourth. The former WBC super fly champion makes it 7 wins in a row since losing to Shinsuke Yamanaka for the WBC bantam title in October. Tanaka 2 fights, 2 losses inside the distance nothing more to be said.
