Tapia destroys Bunchan in 47 seconds

Middleweight Glen Tapia (24-5, 16 KOs) returned with a brutal first round KO against Narong Bunchan (28-9, 22 KOs) on Sunday night at La Perle in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Tapia bum-rushed Bunchan firing a non-stop barrage of punches that drove Bunchan into the ropes. Bunchan was given a count. Tapia then battered him to the canvas as the bout was stopped. Time was :47.

“I wanted to show the world that I’m back!” proclaimed an emotional Tapia afterward. It was Tapia’s first fight after a four-year break. He ended a four-fight losing streak with the win. Tapia plans to return to the ring next month, again in the UAE.

Former world champions Riddick Bowe and Amir Khan were at ringside.

    • Yep. If he fights lower level guys over and over then he should be just fine. The second he steps up, it will be very dangerous for him.

    • I think Tapia has to take it one fight at a time. He wa rushed into fighting all these punchers & he always chose to go toe to toe with them. I hope he gets a good trainer that he would actually listen to. If he wants extend his career he has to be smart in the ring.

  • Good victory for morals. He must work on his defense and execute the plan for each of his future fights. He has a family, it’s up to him to be intelligent and protect his health.
