Thailand’s Satanmuenglek CP FreshMart (pictured) captured the WBC Asia minimum-weight (105lbs) title, while his compatriot Wanchana Meenyothin seized the featherweight (126lbs) crown.

Satanmuenglek, a celebrated former MuayThai champion fought on the shows ‘main event’ against durable Indonesian Melianus Mirin.

The battle was fought over ten rounds, a fight in which the young Thai fighter impressed throughout, taking a unanimous points victory over his steely opponent. This was Satan’s fourth professional boxing fight since he switched codes last year.

The three ringside judges: Kitvipat Boonpuen, Perez Sakul and Anupong Sakul all scored the bout 97-93 in favor of Satanmuenglek, who improves to 4-0. Merlin for his part drops to 9-4.

Another Thai fighter Wanchana Meenyothin won in more vigorous fashion when he stopped Indonesian fighter Agus Kustiawan in the fourth round, via a flash, stiff jab which sent his opponent crashing to the canvas, forcing the referee to call a halt to the contest.

The ringside judges: Somsri Bhusi, Aran Nuchklang and Sudan Prukhet had recorded scores of 30-26 in favor of the Thai fighter at the time of bouts conclusion.
