Boonsai Sangsurat (Thai: เม็ดเงิน 3เคแบตเตอรี่; born 12 July 1978)), better known as Medgoen Singsurat, is a Thai former professional boxer.

Contents

Sangsurat has assumed various ring names, including Big Daddy Med (Thai: เม็ดเงิน กระทิงแดงยิม) and Medgoen Lukjaopormahesak (Thai: เม็ดเงิน ลูกเจ้าพ่อมเหศักดิ์), albeit his real name or birth name has been confirmed as "Boonsai Sangsurat" (Thai: บุญใส สังสุราช). The non-Thai media also refer to him as Medgoen Singsurat, 3K Battery for Filipinos or simply Medgoen Singh.

Boxing career

Medgoen is a southpaw fighter who turned pro in 1997 and in 1999, captured the Lineal Flyweight Championship with a win over Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao. [2] Because of his win over Manny Pacquiao, Medgoen's name is often mentioned during Pacquiao's fights, because he is one of the seven opponents to have beaten Pacquiao (the other six being Rustico Torrecampo, Erik Morales, Timothy Bradley, Juan Manuel Márquez, Floyd Mayweather Jr., and Jeff Horn), and one of the three opponents to have knocked Pacquiao out. He is the second boxer to defeat Pacquiao in the latter's overall pro boxing career. He also won the vacant WBC Flyweight title that had been stripped from Pacquiao due to Pacquiao coming overweight at the weight-ins. He defended the titles once more before losing the titles in 2000 to Malcolm Tuñacao by TKO.

Medgoen is promoted by Thai Storage Battery Public Company Limited, and hence bears the 3K Battery name, as the company contracts Thai boxers to sponsor their products.

Medgoen Singsurat has a family full of boxers. His 2nd cousin, Saranyoo Tohchoodee, born April 18, 1991 in Thailand, also was a professional boxer before giving up boxing to go to America to study along with his sister. He used the fighting style Southpaw, which he learned from his cousin. He began his boxing career at the young age of 6 and continued fighting both in and out of the ring, giving him the nickname Saranyoo "Street King" Tohchoodee, until he was 13. Most of his fights took place in local venues and were shown on Blow by Blow, an evening boxing show. He had a professional record of 23-2-0 with 19 KO's which is still a record in southeast Asia.

Outside boxing

Besides being one of the greatest youth boxers in Southeast Asia, he was also a soccer prodigy. He was going to play for the Thailand national team until he broke his ankle in a game and never could fully recover, but he did manage to become a very good table tennis player in the meantime. He was the top ranked youth player in Thailand for 2 years in a row.
