1990-07-29 Michael Carbajal w rsc 7 Muangchai Kittikasem, Veteran’s Memorial Auditorium, Phoenix, Arizona, USA - IBF. Referee: Bobby Ferrara. Although suffering from weight-making problems, Kittikasem (108) did well to stay in the fight despite being consistently outgunned. He even cut Carbajal (108) over the left eye in the fourth before the challenger unloaded to drop him with a short left uppercut. Kittikasem somehow held on during the next two rounds, but after a heavy right hand dropped him face first in the seventh the referee immediately called it off on the 14-second mark.
