Thong Sithluangphophun Defends PABA Belt With TKO Win

By James Goyder

Undefeated prospect Thong Sithluangphophun made the eighth defence of his PABA 126 lbs title in Sisaket this afternoon. The 23 year old was barely troubled by Jovill Marayan who he stopped right at the start of the fourth round.

Marayan came into the fight with an uninspiring recent record and seemed incapable of avoiding his opponent's jab. At the end of the opening round Thong followed up with a straight right hand to the body from close quarters which left the Filipino in visible discomfort.

In the second stanza Marayan's guard was wide open and he ate numerous jabs, although he did manage to land a hard right hook at the end of the round which briefly unbalanced Thong. The third round saw the Thai scoring with one-two combinations to the body and head, with the odd left uppercut thrown in for good measure.

Towards the end of the round they found themselves trading on the inside and Marayan was able to land a few body shots of his own although Thong was clearly getting the better of the exchanges. At the start of the fourth they met in the middle of the ring and two uppercuts on the inside put the Filipino on his back.

Marayan couldn't beat the count and the referee waved off the fight meaning that the Filipino has now lost 10 of his last 11 fights. He drops to 9-22-3 while Thong improves to 19-0 and retains the PABA 126 lbs title he won in 2014.

Earlier in the afternoon interim PABA 118 lbs champion Yodsingdaeng Jor Chaijinda (13-4) was in action in a six round non title fight. He beat newcomer Petlamkorn Kwamjaiseekort by decision.

[QUOTE=DionysusX;16868493]Lmfao! As a dude with a difficult last name for native English speakers, I can't adequately explain just how much I love names like this one.[/QUOTE] Just call him by his first name: Thong.
