Mayweather's Record Equaled!! Menayothin Is Now 50-0

Thai Minimumweight, Wanheng Menayothin Beats Leroy Estrada To Tie Mayweather's Unbeaten Record.

They always say that records are made to be broken!

Floyd Mayweather touts himself as 'TBE' or The Best Ever. Whilst he has his fair share of doubters and Naysayers. One thing no one can argue with is that going through fifty professional fights unbeaten is something truly remarkable. Yes, I know his last fight was against Connor McGregor and in all fairness, it was a bit of a farce. But it was still a fully licensed boxing match. But his record didn't last long, for a much lesser known boxer has entered the 50-0 club and could very well beat the brash Nevada native's record next time out. 

But how many of you out there are familiar with the man that could well knock 'TBE' off of his perch? My guess is unless you are a true die-hard fan that knows boxing in and out, the answer is not many. But don't worry, I've got you covered. 

Chayaphol Moonsri or Waheng Menayothin is the WBC minimumweight champion. This 32-year old man is five-feet-two and weighs in at the minimum weight limit of one hundred and five pounds. He has fought exclusively in Thailand for his whole career and has been the WBC champion since 2014. 

Today he stepped into the outdoor arena in downtown Nakhon Ratsachima to face Panamanian contender, Leroy Estrada. He successfully defended his title with a fifth-round knockout. He dropped Estrada twice in round three, another two times in round four and then a final time in the fifth. The referee, Jay Nady waving the fight off after the final knockdown. 

The occasion was so significant that WBC President, Mauricio Sulaiman made the long trip to Thailand to watch history made. Presenting the champion with a custom-made watch to mark the momentous victory. 

Mr. Mayweather, one more fight?
