Knockout CP Freshmart Stops Odaira To Retain WBA World Title

By James Goyder

Knockout CP Freshmart made short work of Go Odaira in Chonburi this afternoon. The reigning WBA 105 lbs champion successfully defended his belt with a fifth round finish of an opponent who was brave but hopelessly outmatched.

The first round was uneventful with Knockout on the front foot and Odaira circling away and throwing the occasional counter. In the second stanza the champion picked up the pace, looking to back his opponent up against the ropes and land straight rights to the body and head.

The third round continued in the same vein with Knockout moving forwards and ripping right hooks to his opponent's body. Odaira continued to fire back intermittently but it was clear his punches weren't having the same effect and a right hook on the bell caught him flush.

Things went downhill fast for the challenger in round four. He came out aggressively but received a right hook for his troubles and was soon backed up against the ropes eating hard hooks to the body. Sensing his opponent was hurt Knockout went for the finish and succeeded in scoring the first knockdown of the fight.

Odaira seemed to stumble to the ground but he took a long time getting up with the body shots having clearly taken their toll. Once the fight restarted Knockout went all out for the finish throwing one uppercut to the midsection after another but he strayed low and was warned by the referee.

The bell saved Odaira from a certain stoppage but it was only a temporary reprieve. In the fifth Knockout went to the body again and, with Odaira covering up, he fired off a left uppercut - right cross combination which connected clean and put the Japanese fighter down for a second time.

This time Odaira wasn't getting up and it was a familiar feeling for the challenger who was also stopped in the fifth round by WBC champion Wanheng Meenayothin in Thailand last year. The win takes Knockout to 15-0 overall while his opponent drops to 13-6-3.

There were also wins for Yodmongkol Vor Saengthep, Oleydong Sithsamerchai and Noknoi Sitthiprasert although all three victories came at the expense of vastly overmatched opponents.

Everything that's wrong with boxing, or at least "world title" blather. The "champion's" opponent had been knocked out in two recent "title fights" so naturally he was qualified for third "title" fight

Hey uhhh I just did a little research so it looks like the Thai currency is 23 cents for every dollar no wonder they need these sponsorships and they are fighting at mini weights to! Sometimes these guys end up…

[QUOTE=techliam;17463134]A lot of Thai fighters are sponsored by businesses, and change their fighting names accordingly[/QUOTE]And to their gym names which is really pathetic. I've never seen anything so damn corny as that.
