Sintung Kietbusaba recovered from a 1st round knockdown take a TKO9 victory over Wat Wor Wutthinant at Ratchadamnoen Boxing Stadium on Monday evening in Thailand. Wat, who is a current Thai Welterweight champ, surprised the crowd by dropping Thai PABA champ with a left hook at the end of round 1. But Sintung recovered and came back with his effective jabs and counter-punching style in the next couple of rounds. Wat's face was swollen and his right eye was nearly closed, so he decided to retire himself before the 9th bell sound. Sintung retained his PABA crown by TKO9 and improved his record to 3 wins (2KO) and 1 loss.
On the same card, former Muay Thai champ, Petchtapee Pinsinchai (Por Singtai), had a good pro debut with an impressive TKO5 victory over Thai Miniflyweight champ, Namchai Taksin-Isarn, easily capturing the PABA Minimumweight belt. Namchai used an agressive style since from the beginning, but Petchtapee had good footwork. In rounds 3 and 4, Petchtapee landed several combinations to halt Namchai's power. In the next round, he dropped the Thai champ to the canvas with a combination of big punches, forcing the referee to promptly sto the fight. The PABA 105 lbs belt was vacated by the inactivity of former champ, Pornsawan Krathingdaeng Gym (Por Pramook).
