Afghanistan > Vietnam
Whoops! In the time since I last updated, Hu Tan Le scored the biggest win of his career in a defense of the WBA Asian title vs Filipino fighter Jake Amparo (11-3) where he achieved a split decision victory to move to 6-0 3 KO
I just watched The Long Trinh (how boxrec lists him) vs. Tanawat Ketsiri. What a body puncher he is!
March 25th card:
Huu Toan Le (6-0 3 KO) is fighting Garen Diagan (9-3 5 KO) from The Philippines in a defense of his WBA Asia Minimumweight title. Diagan is a former Philippines champion at 108. Le is #7 with the WBA at 105 at the moment, and this defense will probably push him up a rank or two if he wins. If he keeps winning, he might be the first male Vietnamese fighter to fight in a major world final title eliminator.
Ngoc Hai Nguyen (4-0-3 3 KO) is taking a huge step up vs Campee Phayom (22-5-2 14 KO) at super lightweight. Phayom is a former super lightweight Thai champion, fought to a draw for the OPBF Youtth Super Feather title, and was winning handily on the cards in a WBA Asia Super Feather title fight before he was stopped in the 7th. Sort of a regionally important battle, the winner will likely be in some sort of regional title fight after.
Hong Dat Vo (4-0 3 KO) is taking a step-up vs Rachata Khaophimai (12-3 9 KO) from Thailand at super lightweight.
Dinh Hoang Truong (3-0 3 KO) is fighting Dae Hyun Baek (4-1 3 KO) from Korea in the first defense of his WBA Asia Super Middle title.
I hope to be able to watch some of this. Thanks for the update.
I wonder what the reaction would be if a foreign fighter walked to the ring to this.
Diagan is live. Dinh will have to be on his toes
I'm actually about to watch him. I might share my thoughts after.
Diagan wins by split decision against Le IN Vietnam! I personally scored it a draw but if had to pick a winner, would have been Diagan. Much cleaner work for him and really beat up Le’s face throughout.
