You need to sign in to get anything. One thing that pissed me off is that they're using the Thai's actual names. Pisses me off because when I went to check I thought (I think it was either Estrada or Gonzalez) were fighting someone other than Sor Rungvisai. Same with Knockout CP Freshmart and Wanheng Menaoythin. I thought these were new fighters for a short second. I think someone also said it's disrespectful, but I was more mad that I almost thought it was a different fighter altogether.

I don't like it either. But I've read it was done to help prevent fraudulent activities. For instance, someone could take the 'CP Freshmart', 'Sor Rungvisai', '3K Battery' etc. name of another boxer, go abroad, and assume their identity fairly easily.

That's been there for years TBF.

But they have recently started to add amateur, WSB, bare-knuckle and even kickboxing records, which is fantastic.
Really? Never noticed it. But can't say I was looking for it either. Probably only noticed it because I was looking through the recent chances.

I never signed in until recently to notice that feature.

Yeah, I only noticed it when I looked up Nistor who GBP just signed. It has his WSB record and, I think, some of his amateur stuff. These new features just shock me sometimes. I literally thought for a second this dude has a long list of losses. It's not a good signing until I noticed it was names like Hrgovic Savon, etc. ,
