7 December Erbito Salavarria w rsc 2 (15) Chartchai Chionoi, Army Sports Stadium, Bangkok, Thailand - WBC. Referee: Chung-Young Soo. After an even first round, Salavarria (111¼), the Orient champion, struck violently when knocking Chionoi (111¼) down three times in the second to enforce an automatic stoppage under the three-knockdowns-in-a-round ruling, with just 1.48 on the clock. Regardless of the regulations, the champion would never have made it to the end of the second round as he was out on his feet when rescued.
