1975-07-15 Saensak Muangsurin w rtd 8 (15) Perico Fernandez, Hua Mark Stadium, Bangkok, Thailand - WBC. Referee: Ernest Magana. For a man having just his third pro contest, Muangsurin (140) looked a veteran as he attacked the champion from the second round onwards and nearly put him down during that session with heavy-handed hooking. Instead of going on the defensive, Fernandez (140) tried to outpunch his southpaw opponent before being forced to backpedal in the face of right-hand smashes and in the fifth he was cut over the left eye. From thereon it was one-sided as rights and lefts crashed into Fernandez almost monotonously and after suffering a badly broken nose he walked to the centre of the ring at the start of the eighth and announced his retirement.
