CHAYAPHOL MOONSRI, known as Wanheng Menayothin or Wanheng Kaiyanghadaogym, is now 53-0 – just.

The WBC minimumweight champion retained his title on Friday (May 31) with an eight-round technical decision win over Japanese challenger Tatsuya Fukuhara to take his record to 53-0 – that’s three wins more than Floyd Mayweather – but was badly cut in the process.

The fight at the City Hall, Chachoengsao, Thailand was stopped because of a gash Wanheng suffered above his right eyebrow, which bled profusely and prevented him from continuing. The doctor then intervened and called the fight off.
