Sunday, December 6, 2020: Thailand’s Apichet Petchmanee yesterday retained his WBC Asian Boxing Council lightweight title with a unanimous points victory over Russia boxer Musheg Adoian on the WP Boxing promotion in Pathum Thani, Thailand.

The fight, an immediate rematch from their fantastic toe-to-toe encounter back in October wasn’t the classic we all expected as the challenger suffered a painful left elbow injury which became evidently difficult to overcome from the third round onwards. The brave pugilist based out of Pattaya, fought to the final bell of the eight and final round.

For the champion, Apichet, this victory improves his professional record to eight wins from eight outings while Musheg drops to seven and three.

On behalf of everyone at the WBC Asian Boxing Council we would like to congratulate Apichet on his successful defense and wish Musheg a speedy recovery.
