As a result of the reports from the KBC and the TBC in regards to the investigation of the identity of the challenger of the OPBF S.Lightweight title bout, the OPBF head quarters hereby officially declares the following:
The OPBF revokes recognition of the fight between Jung-Bum Kim and Singhtothong Flouridegym(Real name:Mr.Samart Ngamsanga) as an OPBF S.Lightweight title on May 18,2009 in Jeju, Korea.
The reason for this is that the Thai fighter who actually fought had fraudulently assumed the identity of Singhothong. We resarched into the fighter and found that his real name is Chaiyaporn Chankhiao, not Samart Ngamsanga.
Therefore, we have decided the match was not a legal, valid title bout.

However, Thai Boxing Commission has suggested to the OPBF that the Thai fighter who actually fought assumed the dentity of Singhtothong.
If the fighters are found to be different, the OPBF will revoke the recognition of the fight as an OPBF Super Lightweight title bout.
