Pongsaklek retains flyweight crown

THAILAND'S Pongsaklek Wonjongkam retained the WBC's interim flyweight title with a sixth-round TKO of Japan's Takahisa Masuda in Chiang Mai, Thailand, yesterday.

Referee Brad Vocale stopped the bout 1 minute and six seconds into the round. The 32-year-old Pongaklek won the WBC's flyweight title in 2001 and defended it 17 times before losing a decision to Japan's Daisuke Naito in 2007. He reclaimed the interim title in April with a decision over Mexico's Julio Cesar Miranda. This was 30-year-old Masuda's first fight outside Japan.
