Jomthong Chuwattana vs Hiromasa Masuda Set for November 14th

  • Written by Dave Walsh

On November 14th at National Stadium in Bangkok, Suriyan Sor Rungvisai is set to defend his WBC Flyweight title in a boxing match against former WBA Super Flyweight champion Nobuo Nashiro. However, a big Muay Thai fight has just been announced and it is between Rajadamnern Stadium Super Featherweight champion Jomthong Chuwattana and former AJKF Featherweight champion Hiromasa Masuda. Jomthong is coming off of a dominating performance over Tetsuya Yamato earlier this month, taking a unanimous decision win. He is currently 8-1 on the year and has back to back wins over Nong-O Sit Or. Masuda has had a rough couple of years and is currently on a 4-fight winless streak with his most recent loss being to WBC Muay Thai Japan champ Rashata on the same card that Jomthong defeated Yamato. It's a bit of a strange matchup considering they are going in somewhat opposite directions and Jomthong is coming off a win while Masuda is coming off a loss. While a win is unlikely for the struggling Masuda, an upset could possibly rejuvenate the 38 year old's career.

Another bout announced for the event is Kaimookdum(?) Chuwattana taking on former NJKF Bantamweight and Featherweight champion Takashi Fujiwara aka Kunitaka. WBC Muay Thai currently has Kunitaka ranked 10th at Super Bantamweight and Kaimookdum 4th at Bantamweight and with a vacant Super Bantamweight title, the winner could find themselves in prime position to challenge for the vacant title.

For those interested in the boxing main event, Suriyan Sor Rungvisai came out of nowhere last year, losing a close, yet clear and entertaining decision to Flyweight kingpin Pongsaklek Wonjongkam. Since, he won a couple of stay busy fights before taking the WBC Super Flyweight title off of Tomas Rojas in August. Nashiro held the WBA Super Flyweight title before losing it to Hugo Fidel Cazares, going 0-1-1 against Cazares with a split draw and unanimous decision loss. In his first fight this year he lost a unanimous decision to the aforementioned Rojas and won a tune up fight against Ray Perez. {jcomments on}
