1970-04-06 Berkrerk Chartvanchai w pts 15 Bernabe Villacampo, National Stadium, Bangkok, Thailand - WBA. Referee: Sochio Kato. Scorecards: 72-68, 72-71, 71-73. In what was virtually toe-to-toe slugging from first to last, Chartvanchai (110), cut over the left eye in the ninth round, put on a storming finish to warrant the split decision and the championship. At the two-third stage of the fight, Villacampo (109) began to tire and with his blows lacking authority the Thai came through.
