Khaosai Galaxy Boxing Highlight

Posted by MMAMELEE
Boxing Highlight of "The Thai Tyson" Khaosai Galaxy. Khaosai Galaxy was a super flyweight boxer from Phetchabun province in Thailand who started out as a muay Thai fighter before switching to Marquis of Queensbury style and competing in international style boxing. Due to this switch, Khaosai lacked the amateur experience that most boxers gained while working their way through the ranks. Instead, early on in his career, he relied on his toughness and his incredibly powerful left hand which he would develop to become arguably the most powerful punch in the history of the super flyweight division. As Khaosai gained experience as a western boxer, he developed a more well-rounded game, although his game plan was always to close his opponents down, measure with his right and knock them out with his famous left. Apart from two fights in Japan, Khaosai fought only in his native Thailand in packed out stadiums and would earn fight purses of more than $100,000. In 1984, Khaosai knocked out Eusebio Espinal to win the vacant WBA Super Flyweight Title and defended his belt a record-breaking 19 times over the next 7 years, winning 16 of those bouts by knockout. He retired in 1991 with a record of 49 wins and 1 loss (43 knockouts). In 1999, Khaosai Galaxy was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame and is considered by many to be the greatest western boxer from Thailand in history. Ring Magazine also ranked him at #19 in the 100 Greatest Punchers of all Time list and #43 in the Greatest Fighters of the Last 80 Years list in 2002.
