Kompayak, Denkaosan Set For WBA Title Fights in August

By James Goyder

Two interim WBA titles will be on the line for Thai fighters taking on Japanese opponents in August with Kompayak Por Pramuk making the first defence of his 115 lbs belt against Koki Eto and Denkaosan Kaovichit challenging Nobuo Nashiro for the vacant 112 lbs strap.

Kompayak (50-4) will be defending the interim belt he won so impressively by stopping Venezuelan Jean Piero Perez in April when he takes on Eto (13-2-1) in Thailand on August 1st. Ten of the Japanese challengers wins have come by way of KO and he has a 6-1 record against Thai opponents with the loss coming at the hands of Panomroonglek Kaiyanghadaogym in 2011.

Denkaosan (61-3-1) won the WBA flyweight title in 2008 but is 36 now and has not been a world champion since 2010. He will be looking to maintain a record which has seen him maintain 100 per cent winning recordon Thai soil when he takes on Nashiro (19-5-1), who has a notable 2012 loss to Tepparith Kokietgym, for the interim 115 lbs WBA belt.

Argentinian Juan Carlos Reveco currently holds the regular WBA 112 lbs belt while Juan Francisco Estrada will be putting his 'super' version of the same title on the line against Milan Melindo tomorrow night in Macau. Meanwhile the WBA 115 lbs belt currently belongs to Liborio Solis.
