Richie Mepranum Pounds Por Nobnom For TKO Win

by Ronnie Nathanielsz

Former WBO Oriental flyweight champion Richie Mepranum scored a stoppage over Thailand’s Phupha Por Nobnom in General Santos City on Saturday when Phupha didn’t come out for the 5th round.

The Thai fighter quit after taking what boxing writer Edwin Espejo reported were “several mandatory counts in all the rounds he lasted, even taking a knee on at least two occasions to avoid the onrushing Mepranum” who is managed by Maasin, Sarangani Mayor Lopez.

According to boxrec.com Phupha was knocked out in the 2nd round by ALA Promotions Albert Pagara on March 24, 2012 and apparently hadn’t fought since then.

With the win the southpaw Mepranum improved to 27-3-1 with 6 knockouts underscoring the fact that he is a pure boxer who doesn’t hit hard.

It was the Thai fighters 9th loss as against 10 wins although he had 9 knockouts mostly against Thai fighters who were making their debut or had very poor records.

The 26 year old Mepranum twice fought former WBA flyweight champion Hernan “Tyson” Marquez winning a ten round decision in Texas on March 12, 2010 before losing in a rematch in Sonora, Mexico on March 24, 2012.

Mepranum went after Por Nobnom from the opening bell and dropped him in the very first round before the Thai was again dropped twice in round two and round three before being sent to the canvas twice in the fourth round.
