Wonjongkam shocked by 20-loss Migreno

Phil Jay 01/11/2012

Former WBC flyweight belt hoarder Pongsaklek Wonjongkam has suffered a second stoppage loss of the year and may now be staring into the abyss of his boxing career with an unthinkable loss to Rey Migreno.

The 35 year-old, who has 87 wins from 94 contests, had made 21 successful defences of the WBC 112lb title in two spells, before losing it to 10-loss Sonny Boy Jaro in March and after building up his confidence with four straights wins, has now fallen again.

Filipino Migreno, 26, has 18 victories from his 41 bouts, losing 20 times in his seven-year career and has already been beaten twice by Wonjongkam, the last of which was a first round knockout in July 2010.

Migreno has now gone shooting up the WBC rankings after claiming the WBC International title by stopping the southpaw in three rounds as a shocked crowd looked on in Wonjongkam’s home city at the Central Pavilion in Nakhon Ratchasima.
