Congratulations to Jongsanan “The Woodenman�? Fairtex who continues his 7year win streak.On February 5th, 2005 IKKC Junior Middleweight Champion Jongsanan Fairtex stopped Dutch Champion Marco Pique by 3rd round knockout.

Pique a highly skilled opponent, was the taller and larger of the two but no match for the superior ring intelligence of Jongsanan.The first round was very close, difficult for the judges to score as both fighters cautiously tested one another.

The second round showed greater action and more confidence by both athletes.The fans were not disappointed as the tempo in round 3 increased with some very powerful exchanges.Pique tried to use his reach advantage but not to be deterred, The Woodenman closed the distance and worked the clinch very effectively.

Pique appeared uncomfortable in the clinch even turning his back to Jongsanan and in an effort to escape threw a wild elbow opening a slight cut on the left eye of the Woodenman.Referee John Shorley broke the action briefly.As the athlete’s reset and action resumed Jongsanan landed a flush overhand right sending Pique to the canvas for the 10 count ending the bout.
