Daorung Chuvatana (Thai: ดาวรุ่ง ชูวัฒนะ) also known as Surapol Sidangnoi (สุรพล สีแดงน้อย) (born 1969-04-01 in Nam Pat District, Uttaradit Province, Thailand) is a retired boxer who won World titles in the Bantamweight weight divisions.

Chuvatana turned pro in 1985 and in 1994 won the WBA bantamweight title by winning a decision over John Michael Johnson by controversial TKO. Near the end of the first round, Chuvatana unintentionally headbutted Johnson, causing him to sustain a cut above his right eye, however, the referee ruled that it was caused by a punch and Chuvatana was declared the winner after the ringside doctor inspected the cut and called the fight off.[1] He lost the belt in his third defense to Veeraphol Sahaprom in 1995. He later regained the WBA bantamweight belt with a win over Nana Konadu by decision after the fight was stopped in the 10th round. He defended the title once before losing it to Konadu in a rematch the following year.

After retirement, he served as an airman noncommissioned in the Royal Thai Armed Forces Headquarters.
