Ranking The Best Fighters In The World
World Flyweight Champion 76 3 1 (40)
Last Year s Ranking: 41
Status Report: If all the very good fighters in the world went to work as frequently as Wonjongkam does, we d see high quality fights every weekend, and not just in the last two months of the year. Wonjongkam fought four times since last year s analysis, beating Rodel Tejares (KO 6), undefeated Japanese star Koki Kameda (W 12), Rey Migrino (KO 1), and Suriyan Por Chokchai (W 12). Wondering if that justifies a 34 point jump? Look at it this way: the Kameda fight was big, and Wonjongkam was overdue for a promotion. This year he gets it.
Future: Wonjongkam s arch nemesis, Daisuke Naito, lost to Kameda in 2009 and is 36 years old so another match with him is probably unlikely. A rematch with Kameda isn t out of the question.
