Late last year, Kompayak Porpramook and Adrian Hernandez engaged in a serious contender for Fight of the Year on December 23, with Thailand's Porpramook scoring a 10th round knockout to win the WBC junior flyweight title.
Tonight, they did it again, this time in Mexico, with the reverse roles challenger on his home turf, and Hernandez got his revenge, hammering Popramook en route to a sixth round stoppage victory, regaining his title belt.
Hernandez (25-2-1, 16 KO) lost the first round, but came alive after that, and scored a knockdown on Porpramook (46-4, 31 KO) in the third round. As he unloaded in the corner, Porpramook was able to survive through the round, but the writing was on the wall at that point. Hernandez had taken over, and was just looking too strong and determined for Porpramook, who was slower and seemed tired.
In the sixth round, Hernandez continued to unload, and caught Porpramook with a right hand to the side of the head, which sent Porpramook tumbling to the canvas against the ropes. The referee stopped the fight there, as Porpramook was just in no state to continue, and it was the right call.
Overall, it's been quite a night for good fights, and we'll have more results and recaps coming your way shortly.
