Review: 2011-10-24, spectacular fight (very close to get 5 stars) between Pornsawan Porpramook (red gloves) and Akira Yaegashi (blue gloves). Both fighters don’t start very strong but they picks up the pace round by round and from the seventh the battle becomes a war! At this point of the fight the Japanese Yaegashi, younger than five years, has more energy but the Thai Pornsawan keeps going forward… one of the best boxing fights of 2011. Akira Yaegashi (14-2-0) entered as the No.6 minimumweight in the world while Pornsawan Porpramook (23-3-1) entered as the No.12. Akira Yaegashi vs Pornsawan Porpramook is valid for the WBA World minimumweight title. Watch the video!
