    Default Pone Kingpetch

    Rummaging through an old Ring magazine with Joe Louis on the cover, one page caught my attention. A mythical fighter made up...speed of this guy, wit of that guy...and then it said the power of Pone Kingpetch.

    Looked him up and seams to be a kickboxer more than a boxer.


    Anyone ever heard of him? great fighter? MMA or just kickboxing?

    Never heard of him, he seems unconventional.

    If they were going for flyweight power they normally say Jimmy Wilde.

    Kingpetch was a three time flyweight world champion as a boxer. He won the title, defended three times before losing to the great Fighting Harada. He retained the title from Harada, defended once and lost the title. He subsequently won the WBA flyweight title.

    I don't know about his career in other combat sports.

    If Kingpetch beat Fighting Harada then he must have been good.

    He was a pretty good fighter. The first time I heard of him, I was maybe 12 and saw a picture in an old boxing magazine of two guys boxing barefoot in a pouring rain. One of them was Pone Kingpetch.

    Interesting tidbit on the Ring mag also pertaining to Kingpetch, Nat Fleischer was deciding judge to award him his title twice on the cards. Kingpetch was pretty lean and his defeating all time great Pascual Perez back to back is right up there with rematch v Harada. The guy had all of 3,4 amatuer fights and was very first world champion from Thailand. The first fight with Harada was weight and relentless buzzsaw style taking him out.

    Cool replies.

    This thread is a silent salute to magazines, the printed word.

    On the internet, the day's top stories get lost as soon as another headline replaces it.

    But an updated magazine can be placed on top of the old one, but the old magazine keeps its stories forever in its rightful place.

    What are the chances of reading the name Pone Kingpetch on yahoo, Google or even espn?

    Used to take a monthly bus trip Downtown in the early-mid 90's. Still had a couple of old style magazine stands and would grab up KO, Boxing Illustrated, Ring, Boxing scene etc and that was your fix for the month to track the sport. USA Today had good updates too. That was your 'boxing forum' . Much harder to keep it chronological year after year minus those.
