PETHAWEE AND SERGE TREFEU
Phetawee is a very great fighter who beat great champion as Phet Ek Kiatyongyut, Sam-A Thor Ratthanakiat, Phakon Sakyotin, Singtongnoi Por Telakoon, Wutidet Lookprabath and makes draw against Rungruanglek Lookprabath (Best fighter of year 2010). Today he is N°8 in ranked of Thailand in his category because he stays on several defeats in 2012, in particular against the young boy who rises, Yodwicha Por Boonsit, fights who was for the belt of the stadium of Omnoi in 126 lbs. But in September, 2012 he beat by KO, Nongbeer Chokngarmwong in the stadium of Radja. And this boxer is always beautiful to see fighting because Phetawee fights since the age of five years…
