A gruelling contest saw Kingpetch (110¾) make good use of his reach advantage to tot up points from long range, while Perez (112) looked to get inside. From the tenth round onwards both men were bleeding from eye wounds and at the final bell it was very tight. On winning, Kingpetch became Thailand’s first ever world champion.
