Chris John Stops Piriyapinyo Win Streak at 43! Another boxer falls before reaching Rocky Marciano’s 49-0 (43) record when Thailand’s Chonlatarn Piriyapinyo, 43-1 lost for the first time in his 44th fight in a title attempt at Chris John’s W.B.A. featherweight title at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore last Friday night.

Scores were 117-111 and 119-109 twice.

It was John’s 17th title defense and improves his record to 48-0-2.

Closest to Marciano’s record are Floyd Mayweather and Argentina’s junior welterweight Cesar Cuenca with 43-0 identical records though Cuenca has only stopped ONE of his opponents.

Besides Cuenca has a no-contest that would eliminate him from having a perfect record at retirement.

At the rate Mayweather fights (4 fights in last 5 years) he could approach Marciano’s record around 2019!
