Filipino and Thai warriors made weight ahead of the WBA Asia title double-header set to thrill boxing fans tomorrow Sunday, March 1 in Bangkok, Kingdom of Thailand.

In the main event, Pinoy fighter Jeny Boy Boca (13-6, 11 KO's) of the paradise Filipino Island of Camiguin, will exchange knuckles against tough Thai former world-title challenger Sarawut Thawornkham (21-2, 16 KO's) for the vacant WBA Asia Flyweight Title and a berth in the WBA world rankings.

Last May, the Thai Sarawut, 28, battled the strong titlist Artem Dalakian in Ukraine for the WBA world title, losing by knock out in ten chapters.

Tomorrow, he wants to emerge victorious with a win over the well-trained "Camiguin Tiger" who arrived in Bangkok on his Air Asia flight wanting to score the most important of his boxing career. Who will prevail?
