BANGKOK, Kingdom of Thailand – In devastating fashion, unbeaten Uzbekistan boxers Ulugbek Sobirov and Jasur Akhmadjonov ravaged their respective Thai opponents to score fast knockout wins Saturday (Aug 11) at Ram 100 Boxing Gym here in Bangkok, Kingdom of Thailand.
In the main event, 19 year-old welterweight Ulugbek Sobirov recorded his fifth knockout in seven combats as he pursued and landed hard on his more experienced Thai opponent Theerawat Yoohanngoh (19-9, 13 KO's) who battered did not come out to the sound of the third round.
It was another riveting stoppage win for the young Uzbek who trains in Malaysia with coach Lixer Paingco under the banner of Vladimir Boxing.
In the co-main feature, Uzbek 147-pounder Jasur Akhmadjonov (6-0-1, 4 KO's) shocked and dismantled Phairin Sukmuang of Thailand with a vicious blow to the liver that roughly gassed out the Thai warrior rocking him down to the blue canvas in agonizing pain in the very first chapter.
In women's boxing, 21 year-old Thai featherweight Napaporn Ruengsuwan scored the first win in her pro boxing career as she outpointed in a hard-fought unanimous decision win over tough Thai compatriot Arada Boonmami.
