Chayaphol Moonsri (Thai: ชยพล มูลศรี; formerly: Saengsuree Moonsri; แสงสุรีย์ มูลศรี), known as Wanheng Menayothin (วันเฮง มีนะโยธิน) or Wanheng Kaiyanghadaogym (born 27 October 1985 in Maha Sarakham province, northeastern Thailand) is a Thai professional boxer who has held the WBC mini-flyweight title since 2014.
Early life and muay thai career
Moonsri graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from Bangkokthonburi University. Prior to becoming a professional boxer, Wanheng Menayothin was a muay thai fighter. He claims an unbeaten record in Lumpinee Stadium. Wanheng took up muay thai at 13, and he sustained his family with the money he earned from fighting. He went on to become a Lumpinee champion and a Thai national champion.
Wanheng made his professional debut on January 2007. He won the WBC Youth mini-flyweight title in his third fight. He later claimed two more secondary titles, with the WBC International Silver title, and the WBC International title. On June 2011, Wanheng outpointed former world champion Florante Condes. On May 31, 2013, Moonsri defeated Raul Pusta Jr. by ninth-round technical knockout to retain the WBC International mini-flyweight title.
On November 6, 2014, Wanheng won his first world title when he defeated defending champion Oswaldo Novoa to win the WBC mini-flyweight title. Novoa was badly hurt by an overhand punch in the ninth round, and he retired in the corner. Wanheng's promoter, Virat Vachirarattanawong, paid $175,000 dollars to host the fight, a rarely high purse for the weight class. On his sixth defense, Wanheng beat Melvin Jerusalem by unanimous decision (115-113, 114-113, 114-113). Two scorecards were swung by a point deduction Jerusalem received after he threw a clear low blow.
On May 2, 2018, Menayothin equalled Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s 50-0 record by knocking out Panamanian opponent Leroy Estrada in the fifth round in a mandatory title defense. Mayweather's record is the highest number of wins recorded in pro boxing with no draws or losses.
On August 29, 2018, Moonsri eclipsed Mayweather, reaching 51-0 with a points win over Pedro Taduran.
