Junior featherweight titlist Bernard Dunne (28-1, 15 KOs) of Ireland will face interim beltholder Poonsawat Kratingdaenggym (38-1, 27 KOs) of Thailand in the fall. Dunne promoter Brian Peters won a purse bid for the bout this week. He made the only offer -- the $120,000 minimum requirement. Peters said the fight would be either Sept. 26 in Dublin, Oct. 2 in Macau or Oct. 3 in New York. Dunne will be making his first defense since claiming the belt via 11th-round knockout of Ricardo Cordoba in a sensational brawl in Dublin on March 21. In that fight, Dunne was down twice and almost out in the fifth round but rallied to drop Cordoba three times in the 11th round for the victory.

You guys are gonna see the true power of POON.

He's gonna wreck Bernie.

It should be a good fight for a while though.

is he any good?

If he's a big hitter Dunnes could be in trouble. He's a wee bit chinny. Although he does always get up.

I like Dunne, but he is a bit chinny, but that is a man who love to fight. So i'd be concerned if this other fella is the real deal. Dunne is a world-level fighter, but he's a bit like someone like Ricky Hatton in that you know a few guys will be too much for him.

And unlike someone like Khan, he chooses to trade all the time.

Very exciting fighter, I think he would have beat Rendell Munroe, and he would have got nicely paid.

Poonsawat is really the best of the bunch of the Thai fighters. He has great stamina, goes to the body a lot, and is a strong, strong guy.

He beat a way better version of Cordoba 4 years ago. He basically sapped Cordoba's strength in the later rounds.

He's the real deal. His only loss was against Sidorenko in Germany scorecards a little dubious, 115-113 was probably the correct one.

Only problems are he's only fought outside of Thailand once so hopefully his team gets him to Ireland early *(where this fight I am sure will be) and his recent competition hasn't been the greatest (but he knocked them out).

Poonsawat is a hard worker with good pop and a lot of stamina. Dunne's best chance is to box and the full 12, but Poon has a way of sapping guys with vicious bodywork.

Dunne could outbox him, but he's going to be put to the test for the full 12 if he does because Poonsawat also has a good chin and fights through cuts, etc like they are nothing.
If Dunne wins, his stock will be raised hugely.

Thanks for this. I didnt know much about Poonsawat but i hope Dunne has a hard 12 rounds in him to win.

Krat's pretty good.. Certainly the best super bantam in Thailand.. Had a hum dinger here, with another local hero, Somsak Sithchatchawal, a former WBA champ with over 50 wins & a big punching southpaw to boot.. Krat Ko'd him in 11, although I think it's fair to say, Somsak was a bit past prime..
With regard to Dunnes chances, it all depends on him.. If he chooses to trade, I doubt he'll win.. All Thai fighters have good chins & Krat's no different, we all know Dunne can get caught cold.. However, Kratt was outboxed by the light punching Valadimir Sidorenko in his 1st attempt for the title, so I think if Dunne boxes & moves, he may force a late stoppage or get the nod.. Dunne will need to avoid Krat's right hand, though...

Seen some comments on Andy Lee.. I think he's sound.. Terrific pair of hands, especially the left hook.. He gets his defense sorted, he's going places.. Trust...
