How dare I say he beat Daorung in his second fight
Fellow Thai Saensak Muangsurin remains the quickest fighter to win a World title (WBC, in the day of two, in 3 fights)
Sahaprom was very good and if not for western boas in The Ring might well have been the no.1 ranked bantamweight in the World. Austin got the nod
Luckily Rafa was a notch above, but still, he never beat Veeraphol who was the stand out bantam until Hasegawa beat him.
I rank him the no.2 greatest Thai. Not a great fighter, but highly capable, skilled and a patient punch picker who could use the right like a jab.
And Choi gave him a torrid ten rounds so early on. Was so chuffed when I got my hands on it, have loved Choi since he beat Derry on a days notice
