Title Fights: You've GOT to be Kidding!
We have created a segment on WBAN: Title Fights: You've GOT to be kidding! This segment is for the Boxing Community who write in to WBAN (and for WBAN), about some of the most outrageous title fights we are seeing and continue to see in the sport! These would be extreme instances of titles being made. We believe that the boxing community should have a voice, and we have received a sufficient amount of emails repeatedly for some time now about these fights that it is time that they have a public voice on WBAN to talk about it. Not all submissions will be posted. To report a fight, go to Link to Form
On March 30, 2012, there will be a multi-world title belt fight up for grabs between Ju Hee Kim, ranked #15 with boxrec (world ratings) and Ploynapa Sakrungrueng, ranked #44 on Boxrec (world ratings). [Sakrungrueng's boxing record]
An excerpt of a press release that WBAN received from the WBF, stated the following, “South Korea’s World Boxing Federation Women’s World Light Flyweight Champion Ju Hi Kim is set to make her second title-defense on Friday March 30 in hometown Seoul, taking on tough challenger Ploynapa Sakrungrueng from Thailand. 26-year-old Kim, 15-1-1 (6), won the WBF World title in September 2010 when she outpointed Jujeath Nagaowa from the Philippines, and successfully defended it last July with a unanimous decision over another Thai, Fahpratan Looksaikongdin.”
WBAN’s review of Kim’s opponent: Sakrungrueng fought five pro debuters out of six of her opponents.
As ALWAYS,....."Very Curious" when looking up some of these "boxing records" on the net------especially when seeing a cluster of fights on the boxer's record, with either no venue listed, and/or only their particular fight listed as taking place at that location and/or venue...
