This was a World Title Fight?
by Sue TL Fox
April 27, 2009

     
   
   
   
   

(APR 27) On Sunday night Esther Phiri, from Zambia, won a fourth round TKO against an "unknown" boxer Ratree Kreakae, (not listed on Boxrec or WBAN), in a supposed "title" bout, no less. The fight took place at the Hood Restaurant in Nairobi, Kenya.

In the Lusaka Times online news, they reported that Phiri was fighting for a WIBA title. But, WBAN received notice from the WIBA, Ryan Wissow, who told us that he had NOTHING to do with this match. Wissow even went so far to post his comments on the Lusaka Times website where the story is posted.

He stated the following in those comments: "WIBA DID NOT SANCTION THIS FIGHT. I refuse to work with promoter Kaleb Cuya because he is a piece of s..., using the WIBA’s name to promote this event, when the WIBA is in no way involved with these fight, and not paying the WIBA and other sanction bodies’ fees. I told Caleb before the fight to lose my number, I want nothing to do with him or his shows. I am the president of the WIBA and I approve this message. RYAN WISSOW"

On Lusaka Times, they described the fight as the following: "Esther was far superior throughout the fight against the little known Thailand boxer who hardly threw an effective punch against the celebrated Zambian female boxer."

Just "one" little question to anyone concerned..Why in the world was this even advertised or called a World title bout in the first place?

WBAN invites the promoter, the boxer, the boxer's  team, to furnish us with Ratree Kreakae's boxing record.  At this time, she will go down as a 0-1-0 boxer otherwise.  Or if
the above mentioned would like to respond to the supplied information that this report has included about the fight not being sanctioned by the WIBA.  We would like to see photos of the fight, and/or video of the fight.  Email us
