Tepparith Singwancha or Tepparith Kokietgym (Thai: เทพฤทธิ์ สิงห์วังชา, เทพฤทธิ์ ก่อเกียรติยิม), is a Thai professional boxer in the super flyweight division and was the World Boxing Association (WBA) Super Flyweight Champion from 2011 – 2012. He won the interim title on May 1, 2011 in Phetchaburi, Thailand against Drian Francisco, and was elevated to full champion in November of that year.[2]

He can beat all Japanese boxers in Japan for three consecutive times include Daiki Kameda (2011-12-07), Tomonobu Shimizu (2012-04-04; elimination fight), and Nobuo Nashiro (2012-09-01), he earned the nickname from the journalist "Japan Killer".[1]

But in the end of 2012, he was defeated by TKO (referee stop contest, because he isn't in a position to continue fighting after being knocked down three times) in the fourth round with Kohei Kono at Ota-City General Gymnasium, Tokyo.
