    There is no denying Manachai a shot for a championship title. The YOKKAO fighter has been raking up the wins over the past year, it’s about time he gets the gold around his waist. In his last fight, Manachai met Pongsiri PKSaenchaiGym in the ring of Channel 7 stadium for what should have been a title fight.
