Lumpinee welterweight belt is a french job
2 weeks ago Frenchman Rafi Bohic(Singpatong) made history in becoming the first ever non-Thai to become a two-time champion of the legendary Lumpinee Boxing Stadium.
He defended his welterweight belt in a rematch bout versus Seemanut Sor Sirinya(the frenchman came also victorious out of their first contest)that replaced injured Chadd ‘Shark’ Collins.
Rafi is now scheduled to defend his Lumpinee Welterweight title the next feb, the 27th against fellow countryman Dylan Salvador in a promotion hosted by Onesongchai in co-operation with Best of Siam(Skarbowsky).
This title match between 2 foreigners from the same country(Dylan, despite being a top international name,is not ranked at the stadium) would have been unthinkable just few years ago, and it shows how things have drastically changed in recent times.
