Pongsaklek Wonjongkam is currently the Ring Magazine's #5 p4per. However, in my view, he doesn't deserve to be rated so highly. Pong has hid in Asia forever. His biggest victories to date are Naito, Kameda, and Miranda. Meanwhile he never faced Arce, Alvarez, Parra, Viloria, Darchinyan, Donaire, Narvaez, the other top flyweights that were around during his WBC flyweight title reign(s). You know your opposition is questionable when as a lighter weight champion you've managed to avoid facing the best flyweights of your time and your biggest victory to date over a Mexican fighter, a group that normally dominates the lower weight classes, came against Julio Cesar Miranda, a fighter who has never been considered a top Mexican fighter. While on paper, his record may look impressive, a closer look indicates otherwise. 1. Pong is notorious for padding. He fights often but many of those fights are against complete trash or fighters making their pro debuts. How many commissions in the USA would sanction bouts between an experienced champion and a total newb? How would you feel if Manny Pacquiao began facing off against fighters with 0-0 boxing records? 2. While his longevity is impressive, one can argue that he's lasted this long because he avoided the best flyweights of his time and he never moved up in weight like most of the aforementioned former flyweights. If fans gave Roy Jones Jr. a hard time for never facing Dariusz, they should give Pong relentless hell for never facing the best flyweights of his time. Simply put, Pong has proven to be a very good tiltlist, but has never proven to be a great champion. In closing, I'd like to state that I believe fighters like Arce, Darchinyan, and Donaire should all be rated highter because of their desire to challenge themselves in higher weight divisons. Can you imagine the gaudy flyweight achievements they'd have had they chosen to remain at flyweight while feasting on a steady diet of cans/newbs? What's your take on Pong?
