Yoddamrong Singhwangcha (Sithyodthong) has a shot for his old belt when he challenges WBA junior featherweight boss Mahyar Monshipour (rated #2 by Boxingtalk), on November 8 at Sport Arena in Paris, France. Yoddamron (Boxingtalk #5) has booked reservations to leave Thailand on October 24 via an Air France. He wants to regain the WBA 122 lbs title after losing it to Osamu Sato from Japan.


Katsumi Makiyama is the first Japanese boxer in history to fight for the Asian Boxing Council (Under WBC) title. He is scheduled to face off against current ABCO Super Flyweight champion, Medgoen Krathingdaeng Gym (Singhsurat) on October 29, in Thailand. His record is 9 wins (2KO) and 2 losses. The Thai champion is the former WBC flyweight boss and currently ranked No. 7 by the WBC.
