Veteran Wake stops Thai’s Prathip in 2nd in super bantamweight nontitle fight in Tokyo

May 15, 2024 12:14 pm

  Former Japanese and Oriental and Pacific Boxing Federation super bantamweight champion Shingo Wake of Flare Yamagami Boxing Gym stopped Prathip Chinram of Thailand in the second round in a super bantamweight nontitle fight on May 14 in Tokyo.

Wake finishes off Prathip in 2nd

  It was the 36-year-old Wake’s third straight victory since losing to Mugicha Nakagawa of Ichiriki Boxing Gym in October 2022.

  The technical knockout of the scheduled eight-rounder at Korakuen Hall came 53 seconds into the round when the left-handed Wake, currently ranked 10th in the Japanese super bantamweight division, floored Prathip with a counter left and added two more knockdowns also with left-hand punches, prompting the referee to stop the fight.

  The 36-year-old Wake, who unsuccessfully challenged then International Boxing Federation super bantamweight champion Yonatan Guzman Pena of Dominican Republic for the latter’s title in July 2016, said, ‘’I think I can do better. I still want to become a world champion. My age has nothing to do with my desire.’’

  With the victory, Wake improved his record to 31 wins, including 22 KOs, against eight losses and two draws. The 24-year-old Prathip fell to an 8-6 win-loss tally with three KOs.
