This morning from Thailand, reigning world flyweight champion Pongsaklek Wonjongkam defends his crown against Sonny Boy Jaro in Chonburi. The fights have already started, but since it's Thailand, none of the undercard fights were listed on BoxRec, or else these are replays, or something, but the main event is still to come.

Pongsaklek (83-3-2, 44 KO) has made three successful defenses of the WBC title and Ring Magazine world championship he won against Koki Kameda back in 2010, defeating Suriyan Sor Rungvisai, Takuya Kogawa, and Edgar Sosa. He also had a technical draw after just 47 seconds of a fight against Hirofumi Mukai in December.

Jaro (33-10-5, 23 KO) is ranked the No. 8 contender by the WBC, not that that means much, and has won four in a row against lousy competition.

This fight isn't expected to really be competitive, but Pongsaklek is ancient for a "little guy" fighter, at 34, and crazier things have, I suppose, happened right before all of our very eyes. Jaro has been stopped seven times in his 10-plus year pro career, and isn't known to have the best chin, to say the least.

But it's not a pure "bum fight" either, which Thailand is famous/infamous for in pro boxing rings. It's for a world championship, a real one, and we'll be here with live results and immediate post-fight analysis, so brew up a pot of Mountain Dew or whatever you young people do these days, and join us for some boxing in the early mornin' rain.
