Siriporn Defeats Nakagawa
Source: Scott Mallon-Photos, and coverage
August 16, 2007

     
   
   
   
   

(AUG 16) Yesterday at the Mall Bang Khae, in Bangkok, Thailand, Samson Sor Siriporn, 108, (Thaveesuek) won a 10-round unanimous decision over Japan’s Anri Nakagawa, 108. Siriporn was defending her WBC light flyweight title.

Sports writer and photographer Scott Mallon was ringside at the event, and told WBAN, “She (Siriporn) looked slightly better than in the past but she is far from world class caliber. Her manager had Khaokor and Khaosai Galaxy come in to work with her and it helped, but it takes years to produce a world class fighter and she’s got her work cut out for her.”

 

Mallon went on to say that “Although Sor Siriporn had in no way been deserving of a world title shot, this should not take away from her own hard work and accomplishments. She is a positive example for those who want to change their lives around and is now looked up to as someone who has turned their life around.”

She’s worked hard with what little she’s been given and made the most of it. There are other women far more deserving of a title shot but unfortunately the most deserving fighters are not always given opportunities. This is something that happens everywhere in the world and in many ways, the sanctioning bodies can be thanked for this, “ added Mallon.

A Singaporean film company is currently producing a documentary about Siriporn’s life for National Geographic. The film should be completed in 6-12 months and once completed will be shown worldwide.
