Panya Pradabsri Shocks Wanheng Menayothin, Wins WBC Title & Snaps Record

At the City Hall Ground in Nakhon Sawan, Thailand - another 2020 shocker took place Panya Pradabsri (35-1, 24 KOs) snapped the undefeated record of Wanheng Menayothin (54-1, 18 KOs) to capture the WBC strawweight world title.

In a very close fight with both boxers having their moments, all three judges scored it 115-113 in favor of the challenger, who coming in was rated at number 3 by the WBC.

In the last few years, Menayothin became a cult figure among boxing fans - mainly due to his undefeated record.

Menayothin, 35-years-old, became more well known after he surpassed the 50-0 undefeated record of Floyd Mayweather, who retired back in 2017.

Even Mayweather took notice, by downplaying Menayothin record due to his level of competition.

After surpassing Mayweather's run in 2018, he continued to grow in popularity with each additional victory on his undefeated run.

The unbeaten streak influenced Golden Boy Promotions to sign him to a promotional agreement.

He was scheduled to make his American debut earlier this year in California, on a Golden Boy card, but then the event was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

A few months after that cancellation, the boxer made a shock announcement that he was planning to retire from the sport with his 54-0 record - but those close to the boxer convinced him to continue his career and he reversed that decision only a few days later.

He wasn't the first fighter to pass 50-0 (He wasn't even the 20th) and he won't be the last

Insecure people are starting to voice out. For the record, Menayothin did retire with an undefeated record. He just made a mistake by coming out. That’s a lesson learning - never come back in with an undefeated record. Stay away…
