Menayothin Matches Mayweather’s 50-0 Record
After surpassing Rocky Marciano in 2017, Floyd Mayweather stood in the rarefied air of 50 victories. Now, another fighter has joined the ranks of the half century club as WBC Minimumweight Champion Wanheng Menayothin secured the ninth defense of his title, his 18th knockout win, and his 50th career victory against Leroy Estrada.
Menayothin would send Estrada to the canvas five times in as many rounds, before the referee would need to step in.
And while the fighter has never thrown leather outside of his native Thailand, Menayothin may need to travel for his chance at the next record of 89 victories secured by Julio Cesar Chavez.
