1985-06-22 Sot Chitalada drew 12 Gabriel Bernal, National Stadium, Bangkok, Thailand - WBC. Referee: Steve Crosson. Scorecards: 116-112, 115-115, 114-114. Knocked down by a left hook in the first round, and by a left-right in the eighth, Chitalada (111¾) came back strongly with quick-fire jabs and excellent counters against the southpaw Bernal (112). Several times Bernal was shaken, but in the main he made the fight while the champion, who was cut over the left eye in the seventh, countered and moved.
