1966-12-30 Chartchai Chionoi w rsc 9 (15) Walter McGowan, Kittikachorn Stadium, Bangkok, Thailand - WBC. Referee: Sang Hiranyalekha. Once McGowan (110) was badly cut on the bridge of the nose from an accidental head butt in the second round there was no way he would last the distance and Chionoi (111), a tough, rugged box-fighter, took full advantage of the situation when constantly hitting the injured area. Although the little Scott was by far the better boxer, it soon became apparent that the challenger was the stronger of the two and when McGowan’s vision made it impossible for him to see properly the referee stepped in to rescue him with 50 seconds of the ninth round completed.
