Satarnmuanglek and Wanchana Win ABC Titles in Pathum Thani

By James Goyder

Two former Muay Thai fighters won regional titles in Pathum Thani yesterday. Satarnmuanglek Numponthep (pictured) captured the WBC Asia 105lbs title while Wanchana Menayothin won the 126lbs version of the belt.

Former Lumpinee and Rajadamnern champion Satarnmuanglek was the headliner at the Rangsit Boxing Stadium. He faced durable but limited Indonesian Melianus Mirin in a fight which went the distance, with the Thai winning a clear cut decision.

The scorecards all read 97-93 in favour of Satarnmuanglekwho improves to 4-0. Mirin drops to 9-4 but will doubtless be offered further opportunities to fight contenders in Thailand after a gutsy performance.

Wanchana won in more emphatic fashion and moves up to 8-0 after stopping Agut Kustiawan in the fourth round. He passed the first real test of his career with flying colouts while the Indonesian drops to 18-7-2 and remains winless on the road.

Yodmongkol Vor Saengthep (49-3) has already held an interim world title and is currently riding a 15 fight winning streak. He easily overcame the challenge of overmatched Indonesian Marten Kisamlu (3-11) whose corner mercifully decided to throw in the towel towards the end of the fourth.

Petch Sor Chitpattana (45-0) could be set to his the historic 50-0 mark without ever facing a top ranked opponent. He had another comfortable workout taking just under four rounds to completely pick apart Indonesian debutant Tran Dong Du (0-1) with his jab.
