Tue Sep 11, 11:03 AM
(CP) - Canadian Steve Molitor will make the second defence of his IBF super-bantamweight title on Oct. 27 against veteran Fashung 3K Battery.
The 33-year-old Thai boxer, also called Narongrit Pirang, has adopted his sponsor's name 3K Battery as his ring moniker. He is ranked No. 8 by the International Boxing Federation.
Molitor (24-0 with 10 knockouts) will face 3K Battery (58-8-1, 35 KOs) at Casino Rama near Orilla, Ont., in a bout dubbed Rumble At Rama II. The bout is to be televised, his promoter Allan Tremblay announced.
The 27-year-old from Sarnia, Ont., Molitor made his first title defence at the 5,200-seat Rama on July 14, when he stopped South African Takalani Ndlovu in the ninth round. He won the title from Michael Hunter on Nov. 10, 2006 in Hartlepool, England.
His next opponent, 3K Battery, lost his only previous title challenge when he was stopped by featherweight champion Manny Pacquiao in 2004 in the Philippines. It will be only his second fight outside Asia, having lost to Artyom Simonyan of Armenia in 2004 in the United States.
The undercard has an IBF youth featherweight title bout between Martin Lindsay (8-0), a Belfast boxer living in Brampton, Ont., and Mexico's Uriel Barrera (12-1).
Middleweights Shawn Garnett (11-4-1) of Toronto will face Paul Clavette (11-1-1) of Brossard, Que., in a non-title clash.
He took the name of his sponsor!?? Must have been a lot of money for him!
