Norasing, Teerachai To Defend PABA Titles in Thailand

by James Goyder

Norasing Kokietgym and Teerachai Kratingdaenggym are both set to put their perfect professional record on the line when they defend their PABA Titles against Filipino fighters in Thailand.

Norasing (5-0) will be defending his PABA Super Flyweight Title for the first time when he takes on Danilo Pena (26-16-2) in Surat Thani on May 12th while Teerachai (18-0) will be making the 12th defence of his PABA Welterweight Title against Ronnel Esparas (10-9-1) in Bangkok on April 18th.

Originally from Surat Thani, Norasing was extremely successful during his Muay Thai career winning the prestigious 'Fighter of the Year' award in Thailand. Since switching codes the 26 year old, who trains out of Lookbanyai Gym in Bangkok, has been unbeaten.

Teerachai, 21, does not have such a strong Muay Thai background but he is on track to challenge for a world title with 13 of his 18 wins coming by way of KO. Like the majority of the top fighters in Thailand he hails from Buriram but is based at the famous Galaxy Gym in Thonburi.

With both the Filipino opponents coming into these fights on poor form the Thais should prevail but with Thailand currently without a boxing world champion for the first time in many years this will be a chance to get a look at two of the up and coming fighters looking to step up and fill that void.
