Ruenroeng v Lee confirmed

IBF flyweight champion Amnat Ruenreong of Thailand will fight Myung Ho Lee of South Korea on December 7 at Hua Hin Centennial Sport Club in Hua Hin, Thailand.

The fight was confirmed by leading IBF promoter in Thailand, Jimmy Chaichotchuang, who said that the bout was to commemorate the King of Thailand's birthday on December 5.

"I am proud to present the IBF flyweight title fight between Ruenroeng (16-0, 5 KOs) vs. Lee (19-4-1, 6 KOs) to celebrate 'His Majesty' the King of Thailand's Birthday on December 5," Chaichotchuang said. 

"Ruenroeng is voted to be best boxer in 2015 by the Sports Association of Thailand and receive a Royal Trophy Award under the patronage of the King of Thailand. December 7 is a national holiday and our fans wait to cheer their boxing hero Ruenroeng.

"Amnat Ruenroeng is rated 18 by the Ring Magazine and he has defeated several outstanding flyweight contenders including Rocky Fuentes, Kazuto Ioka, Mcwilliam Arroyo, Zou Shiming and John Riel Casimero.

"Lee is a tough opponent, winning his last three fights after he lost a majority decision to Edgar Sosa in Mexico and also lost to Rocky Fuentes in 2012. Fuentes lost to Ruenreong in 2014 for the vacant flyweight title. Lee won by knock-out over four Thai boxers.

"Ruenroeng will do his best to win his fifth IBF title defence against Lee. Ruenroeng's target is to fight Roman Gonzalez in 2016 for an IBF/WBC flyweight unification bout."
