  • Description

    Chartchai Chionoi of Thailand retained his world flyweight boxing title on Saturday night (October 27) in Bangkok, defeating Japan's Susumu Hanagata with a unanimous points decision over 15 rounds.

    It was the first time the 31-year-old Chartchai has had to defend his title since he won it in May, when he beat Fritz Chervet of Switzerland.

    The match started with Chartchai on the defensive, with the younger, and lighter, Hanagata looking for openings to deliver stinging left jabs into the Thai's face. But by the middle rounds. Chartchai had adjusted to the younger man's roving style, and ??? had the Japanese boxer on the defensive.

    The-26-year-old Hanagate hopes for a return match with Chartchai soon. He has promised his fiance that she will marry a champion. and not a challenger.
