    He was the real life Homer Simpson but with Drederick Tatum power.

    Doesn't he hold the record still for the champion with fewest pro fights? He might be at a tie with Lomachenko now.

    His fight with Hearns was brutal he had an insane chin

    Saensak's style in boxing has the one of the strangest you ever see.
    He just stood with muay thai stance, no footwork, put everything in his timing and traded punches with far more experienced pro boxers.
    It relied so much on his chin that he ended up blind at the end og his career.
    He fought Hearns with one eye that is so ridiculous.

    There was an episode where Homer became a Boxer and was able to take a tremendous beating and win fights because his opponent would wear out.

    Because for a professional boxer is style was crappy since western boxe is not muay thai only using first. Despite his overall toughness and heart , Tomas Hearns destroyed him . With a proper training in boxing he could be a champion, anyway.

    Well, he was champion. He's one example of a MT guy that moved to Boxing and had success, there are others that did the same with a more traditional Boxing style.
