BANGKOK-SAMSON TOYOTA-THAILAND, previously fighting as Samson
3K-Battery, registered the 30th defense of his WBF super-fly title, as
he demolished a Korean opponent named JINHO LEE at 1:28 of the opening
session in a scheduled 12.
The Thai lefty Samson, 35-0, 32 KOs, is slated to make his 31st defense
WBA #4 rated light fly PONSAKLEK NAKORNTORN-PARKVIEW, 31-2, 18 KOs,
floored Filipino ARMANDO ROSIL twice in the opening canto and finished
him with a vicious right hook in 2. The upcoming Ponsaklek had decked

FAIRANG KEEPS PABA BANTAM TITLE AND WBA FLY BOSS SORNPICHAI DECKS
RAT BURI, THAILND--FAIRANG 3K BATTERY, Thailand, made his first defense
of his PABA (Pan Asian Boxing Association) bantam title, when he scored

once in the first, and embalmed him with a wicked southpaw right hook in
the fatal canto.
WBC BANTAM CHAMP VEERAPOL DECKS TUNE-UP BOUT
BANGKOK-WBC world bantam champ VEERAPOL SAHAPROM (AKA Veerapol
Nakornluang-Promotion) also appeared in a non-title bout, and stretched
Filipino NATHAN BARCELONA unconscious in the 8th of a scheduled 10.
For Veerapol, it was a tune-up go prior to his mandatory defense against
the top contender Adan Vargas in Thailand on Mar. 11.
Veerapol, now 25-1, 19 KOs, proved too strong for the Filipino victim,
dropping him twice in the 7th and sending him to dreamland in the next

WBC #4 ranked super-feather SIRIMONGKOL SINGMANASUK (AKA Sirimongkol
Nakorntorn-Parkview), ex-WBC bantam boss who jumped up three divisions
after his forfeiture of his title to Joichiro Tatsuyoshi in 1997, landed
a solid straight right and scored a fine KO win over Filipino JONGJONG
ABAO, GAB #5 lightie, in the third. Sirimongkol bettered his mark to
25-1, 10 KOs, but he has yet to regain his sharpness shown during his
