Gaiyanghadaogym, Sithsamerchai Claim Wins In Thailand

By James Goyder

Panomrunglek Gaiyanghadaogym remains on track for a second world title shot after a routine win over Frans Damur Palue in Chonburi this afternoon. The Thai southpaw needed just four rounds to finish the Indonesian journeyman with a straight left hand to the body.

Panomrunglek appeared in no hurry in the opening two rounds as he looked to land the occasional hard left cross while his opponent pawed away with an ineffectual jab. In the second stanza a right uppercut from the reigning PABA 118 lbs champion landed flush and snapped back the Indonesian’s head.

By round three Damur Palue, who has never won a fight outside of Indonesia, was starting to backpedal as Panomrunglek began to land right hooks to the body and connected with a couple of straight left hands which pierced the guard of the challenger.

At the start of the fourth both fighters elected to exchange at close quarters with Palue standing his ground and trading punches with Panomrunglek. It was a brave strategy but one that took a toll on the Indonesian who was on the receiving end of several thunderous hooks to the body and uppercuts upstairs.

Palue’s face was starting to swell but he continued to stand in the middle of the ring and go toe to toe with the Thai until a right uppercut followed by a straight left to the body put him down. The referee started to count but it was immediately clear that the Indonesian was not going to recover and the fight was waved off.

With the victory Panomrunglek improves to 49-2 and increases his winning streak to 13, as well as defending his PABA 118 lbs belt for the sixth time. Palue drops to 12-13- 2 and is now 0-8 overall in fights on foreign soil.

Panomrunglek dropped a split decision to Koki Kameda in Tokyo in his only world title shot to date but another man who has reached the pinnacle of the sport and is slowly trying to work his way back there is Oleydong Sithsamerchai.

The former WBC 105 lbs champion was also in action on Friday afternoon and he extended his winning streak to 25 with a six round decision win over fellow Thai Yonkitti Wor Wisaruk. Oleydong’s record now stands at 60-1- 1 while his opponent appears to have been making his debut.
