Bovy lost in points his fight of March 27th against the English champion Michael Dicks …
Bovy is a “Bull” which never moves back, incredible durable boxer, he destroys his opponents with his fists and the elbows by putting them constantly the pressure. It is nicknamed that “New Rambo” in comparison with Rambo Pongsiri the former legend of the boxing rings of the 90s which had the same style of boxing as him.
In Thailand, he beat big champions as Puja Sor. Suwannee, Yodsanan Sityodtong, Pet Ake Sitjaopor (KO), Nopparat Kiatgamthon (KO), Suahuanlek Chor Sophipong (Match revenge victory by KO), Seanchainoi Seandeatgym, Kru-Noi Sor. Kingstar, Palangchai, Singthongnoi Por Telakun (KO)…
But it is many titanic fights of the beginning of 2000s against Krairung Sor Chaichareon, Suahuanlek Chor Sophipong, Ronachai Naratrikun, Thongchai Tor Silachai to quote that they marked physically Bovy. And when he began to come to fight in Europe it was not any more completely the same boxer but he was always this tremendous warrior in the aggressive fighting. Moreover he has still made raise public with fights phenomenal against Fabio Pinca or he lost in points and against Kamel Jemel with a draw. He so made by big fights against the best European as Michael Piscitello (Win by KO), Rachid Belani (Win by KO), Rudolf Durica (Win), Mosab Amrani (Lose by KO), Michael Dicks (Lose), and recently against French Moussa Konaté (Win)!
