Like another Malaysian badminton world beater, Tan Yee Khan, Punch was an amazing badminton champion in both singles and doubles, winning championship titles around the world.
Coincidentally he teamed up with Ng Boon Bee, after the latter split up with Tan Yee Khan, in their days the world's best double players. But Punch and Boon Bee continued Malaysia's one-time stranglehold on the doubles game.

After retiring from the courts, Punch took up coaching where he coached Malaysia's 1992 Thomas Cup team. Finally, he played a huge role in badminton sports administration, and was the secretary-general of IBF.
His contributions to Malaysian badminton was enormous, making him a truly Towering Malaysian.
Vale Punch, Requiescat In Pace.
