If Wanheng Menayothin (49-0) scores a win (as widely expected), he would have tied the 50-0 unbeaten record held by boxing super star Floyd Mayweather, and Menayothin has vowed to do just that.

Will the world champion Menayothin, competing in boxing's lightest weight class, tie the record of mega star Floyd Mayweather?   Or will the rather inexperienced Panama challenger achieve the unthinkable of defeating Wanheng Menayothin, a local, solid world champion making he ninth defense of his crown?

The author Carlos Costa of Panama, is a boxing judge and fight reporter based in the Philippines.  He will attend the Menayothin vs Estrada WBC world title fight on May 2 in Khorat, Thailand.  Carlos can be reached by email:  [email protected] or by WhatsApp +639184538152
