Former International Boxing Organization (IBO) World Light flyweight champion Rey "Hitman" Loreto and now the WBA number 1 contender and mandatory challenger of Knockout CP Freshmart's WBA minimumweight world Title will challenge the Thai champion in Chonburi Thailand on July 15.

Loreto 26,  who is riding a seven fight win streak all by the way of stoppages since his last loss on 2013 against Benezer Alolod will try add another world title for the Philippines on July 15. Loreto is a former IBO World champion but the IBO stripped him of the title after failing to defend it in the past 1 year. Loreto's last fight was in August 2016 also held in Thailand, when he beat Rungrit Sor Visetkit by a 3rd round Technical knockout. Rey Loreto's record is 23 wins 13 loss and 15 by the way of knockout.

Freshmart or Thammanoon Niyomtrong also 26 year-old will stake his title and unblemished record against Filipino puncher Loreto. He is also a former WBA interim champion and defended it four times before winning the WBA Regular title over Byron Rojas by the way of 12 round unanimous decision on June 2016. Freshmart dubbed himself "Little Pacquiao" as he compare his style to Filipino boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao. Freshmart is a tough champion with a record of 15 wins, 7 by the way of KO with no defeat.
