1970-03-20 Chartchai Chionoi w pts 15 Efren Torres, National Stadium, Bangkok, Thailand - WBC. Referee: Arthur Mercante. Scorecards: 145-141, 148-142, 147-144. In command for most of the fight, Chionoi (112) surprised many with his speed and punch variety, being good value for his title-winning performance. Although there were no knockdowns, Torres (112), bleeding from a cut above the left eye from the fourth onwards, had to sustain some heavy blows before making it to the final bell.
