By Derek Bonnett: Back in October 2014, Thailand’s Knockout CP Freshmart won a controversial decision over Nicaragua’s Carlos Buitrago to become the WBA’s 105-pound interim champion, which these days is a glorified number one status. Buitrago seemingly landed the better punches and in greater volume than the home favorite. The narrow decision by unanimous two point margins left a bad taste in the mouth of some fans, but arguably not as bad as the one Buitrago left following
