Boxing News online | Sirimongkol Singwangcha
Age started boxing: Muay Thai aged nine and amateur boxing at 14.

First boxing memory: My first fight when I was nine at a temple fair. I was really scared, but won a decision. My dad forced me to do it. I think it was because he used to get beat up all the time when he was boxing.

Inspiration: To take care of my family financially. I can sleep under the stars but I want a good place for my parents. We all live together at the gym with the other boxers in the camp.

Motivation: To be the best boxer I can be. I don't think I've reached my potential yet.

Favourite all-time fighter: Marvin Hagler [pictured below]. He was so tough and I loved his style. He just kept going forward, taking everything that came his way.

Best fight seen: Hagler-Hearns (1985). They just went at it. Incredible.

Pre-fight meal: Nothing special, just whatever
my mum cooks for me. Usually chicken or fish.

What do you do to relax: I love playing football, for real and on the PlayStation. Aside from that, just sleeping and generally lazing about.

Pre-fight superstitions: I always perform a wai (Thai greeting).

What training do you do between fights: I don't do any boxing training but I play a lot of football.

Typical breakfast: My mum cooks food for all the fighters at the gym so whatever she makes, I eat.

Last book read: I don't read books, I read the newspaper every day and boxing magazines.

Favourite film: I love funny movies. Jackass was brilliant.

What car do you drive: My car got repossessed,
so now I ride a motorcycle.

Where do you train: At my gym in Phatum Thani just outside Bangkok or on Koh Chang island with Dave Treharne.

Training routine: I run 10km in the morning and then do some light weights. I do two-and-a-half hours in the afternoon of pads, sparring and the heavy bag. I rest on Sundays.

Toughest man faced: I can't really pick one. Can I say the scales? My fights have only been tough when I have lost too much weight. I dropped 13lbs against Joichiro Tatsuyoshi and got knocked
out (1997). I felt so weak.

What supplements do you take: Only essence
of chicken soup.

If you weren't a boxer what would you be:
A footballer or an actor.

Last place you went on holiday: Pattaya (Thai
seaside resort).

Favourite football team: Liverpool and England.

Best boxer in the sport today: Ricky Hatton is the strongest, but Oscar De La Hoya the best.
