COURAGEOUS JOMTHONG TAKES ANUWAT'S TITLE

3 Aug 2008


Jomthong Chuwatana outclassed defending WBC MUAYTHAI World Featherweight champion Anuwat Kaewsumrith in a hard fought duel at the packed Rajadamnern Stadium (31 July).

Anuwat harassed Jomthong with unrelenting hard punches for five rounds, but Jomthong courageously held his ground and kicked back strongly to wrest the title from the Thai superstar.

The fourth round was the testing time for Jomthong when he bravely took two hard punches to the head and then evaded a lightning fast elbow strike to set up an impressive title victory.
All three judges scored the contest 47-49 in favour of Jomthong.

In the other WBC world title on the same Rajadamern championship card Kaiyasit Chuwatana proved far too strong for Daosaming Ingram-Gym, winning every round.

Kaiyasit produced a masterly display eclipsing his opponent with superb knee strikes at close range.

Two of the judges scored the contest 49-47 for Kaiyasist while the third judge gave the new champion a wider margin 50-47.
