Yodsanan Sor Nanthachai or Yodsanan Sityodtong a.k.a. Yodsanan 3-K Battery (Thai: ยอดสนั่น 3เคแบตเตอรี่; born August 17, 1974 in Phrai Bueng District, Srisaket Province, Thailand as Theera Phongwan), is a professional Thai boxer in light welterweight division. Yodsanan currently fights out of Evolve Mixed Martial Arts in Singapore where he is a member of the Evolve MMA Fight Team.
Yodsanan turned pro in 1993 and won his first five fights by KO. In 1997 he defeated Run Tangkilisan to win the interim PABA Super Featherweight Title. He defended the title 18 times before vacating it in order to challenge for the WBA Super Featherweight title which he won by defeating Lakva Sim on 13 April 2004.
Yodsanan successfully defended the title three times defeating Lamont Pearson, Ryuhei Suguta and Steve Forbes. On 30 April 2005 he faced challenger Vicente Mosquera at Madison Square Garden. Yodsanan became the first man to ever knock Mosquera down but still lost the fight by unanimous decision.
On 2 February 2009 Yodsanan defeated Jonathan Simamora by third round KO to win the vacant IBF Australasian Light Welterweight title.
Mixed martial arts
In early 2011 it emerged that Yodsanan had started training in Mixed Martial Arts at Evolve MMA in Singapore. On July 15, 2011 it was announced that Yodsanan had signed with ONE Fighting Championship. This has led some journalists to suggest that Yodsanan will be the best boxer to ever switch from boxing to MMA.
Yodsanan made his professional debut when he fought South African Muay Thai champion Daniel Mashamaite at ONE Fighting Championship: Champion vs. Champion at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on September 3. He won the fight via TKO in the second round after landing a stunning flying knee to the face of his opponent.
