1972-09-29 Venice Borkhorsor w rtd 10 (15) Betulio Gonzales, National Stadium, Bangkok, Thailand - WBC. Referee: Zack Clayton. The southpaw Borkhorsor (111½) slashed his way to the title with incessant body punching which demoralised the champion and left him with a badly bruised liver and kidneys. Gamely, Gonzalez (111½), who was also suffering a gashed mouth, tried to protect his body in the tenth round without success and at 2.10 he signified that he was pulling out of the contest.
