Padjai Yongyuthgym Captures His Second PABA Title

Padjai Yongyuthgym won the second PABA title of his career by stopping outmatched Indonesian Elly Ray in the opening round of their super featherweight fight in Bangkok yesterday afternoon.

Padjai won the PABA featherweight title in 2010 and made three successful defences before losing it to Vyacheslav Gusev in Russia in a fight which the Thai boxer quite clearly won. He is now on the comeback trail campaigning at 130 lbs and barely had to break a sweat to win his first belt at the weight.

Padjai is known as 'The Sniper' because he tends to take a patient approach and both fighters exchanged jabs in the opening round with the Thai looking much the sharper. The fight ended abruptly after less than two minutes of action when an innocuous looking overhand right glanced off the back of the Indonesian's head, putting him down for a count from which he didn't recover.

With the win Padjai's record improves to 16-1-2 while Ray drops to 10-9-1 but he probably won't get invited back to fight in Thailand any time soon after putting up such token resistance. In total there were three Indonesians on the card and while they all lost the other two at least managed to avoid the ignominy of getting stopped so quickly.

Norrasing Lookbanyai looked one of the top prospects in Thailand after winning his first five fights with four KOs but his most recent outing, against Filipino journeyman Danilo Pena, ended in a mixed decision draw and exposed some flaws in the game of the former Muay Thai champion, who doesn't train at a dedicated boxing gym.

Yesterday he was up against Indonesian Daiboy Sajiro who was able to take the body work of the Thai super flyweight for the first three rounds but wilted under the barrage early in the fourth, turning his back and basically giving up. The win moves Norrasing's record up to 6-0-1 while the Indonesian drops to 3-7-1 after his third consecutive loss in Thailand.

Also on the card was Fonluang Sor Tanapinyo who made a successful comeback after over two years away from the boxing ring. The 23 year old won a decision over Indonesian journeyman Boido Simanjuntak in a six round fight despite being tagged numerous times, the win takes his record to 15-1-1 while his opponent drops to 16-20-1.
