World Boxing Council minimumweight champion, Wanheng Menayothin (52-0, 18 KOs), will defend his crown on March 29 in Chonburi, Thailand, against Japan’s Tatsuya Fukuhara (21-6-6, 7 KOs).
The challenger has won 2 fights since he lost a close fight with Wanheng in November of 2017.
The fight was scheduled to take place on March 1, but for promotional reasons it had to be postponed.
For Menayothin, the fight will be the eleventh defense of the minimum title he won in November 2014, when he defeated Mexican champion Oswaldo Novoa.
Wanheng is known for having surpassed the 50-0 record of Floyd Mayweather Jr, something he did last year when he defeated Filipino Pedro Taduran, improving his record to 51-0.
For Fukuhara this is a great opportunity, because in the first fight he had against Wanheng, he looked very competitive.
