By Ronnie Nathanielsz

World Boxing Council minimumweight champion, unbeaten Wanheng Menayothin is determined to retain his title which is only one of the last two remaining world titles held by Thai fighters when he faces Mexican Saúl “Baby” Juárez in Chonburi, Thailand on August 2.

The Menayothin title defense comes after WBO bantamweight champion Pungluang Sor Singyu lost his title by a spectacular 11th round knockout against Filipino southpaw Marlon Tapales in the historic city of Ayyutha last July 27.

Menayothin who has an impressive record of 42-0-0 with 17 knockouts is “raring and ready” to take on Juarez  who has a record of 23-4-1 with 12 knockouts according to the WBC with both going face to face and eyeball to eyeball, during a tense final press conference.
