1985-07-17 Khaosai Galaxy w rsc 5 (15) Rafael Orono, Rajadamnern Stadium, Bangkok, Thailand - WBA. Referee: Fernando Viso. The first couple of rounds saw Orono (114) dictating with firm left jabs and occasional right crosses before the champion got inside in the third and fourth sessions. In the fifth, Galaxy (115) immediately went to work, knocking Orono down twice with solid lefts, the first time to the body and then to the head, before the referee rescued the Venezuelan on the 0.59 mark when he was being battered incessantly.
