Picture: Thai Rath
BANGKOK: -- A Thai boxer has been banned by the Japan Boxing Commission after a performance that looked more like swimming than fighting.
A video shows Aekkachai Saengthapthim - in the black shorts - coming out all guns blazing in a bantamweight contest against his Japanese adversary Haruaki Kamiya, reported Thai Rath.
But he is soon dispatched to the canvas after a completely inept display.
The fight took place on April 1st but the Japanese authorities said they were not fooled! Aekkachai has been banned for incompetence and wasting the money of spectators.
In fact he was one of five Thai boxers to be banned on the same charges after other fights earlier this month.
Aekkachai went into the fight with a one loss record as opposed to his opponent's six wins and no defeats. It soon becomes obvious that he is out of his depth.
Several Thai posters on YouTube suggested he should take up swimming with those flailing arms.
Mindza Tarepunnn said: "Funny - was he boxing or swimming?"
While Jirajus Waiwudhi suggested: "Just give up boxing".
