By Carlos Costa

The 31-year-old champion Kompayak Porpramook (50-4, 35 KOs) - the same fighter who was knocked out and dethroned last year by Mexican WBC world champion Adrian "El Confessor" Hernandez - bounced back into success by overpowering Venezuelan Jean Piero Perez to capture the vacant WBA interim belt last April in his land of Thailand.
Meanwhile, the challenger, WBA #7 Koki Eto (13-2-1, 10 KOs) , a hard-swinging 25-year-old warrior from the land of the Rising Sun, does not intent to let pass his golden chance to conquer a world crown.
Indeed, the much taller Koki Eto aims at scoring the power blows that would force the demise of the tough more experienced champ Kompayak Porpramook today. Will he be able to do it?
