Billed for the vacant title following the retirement of Ji-Won Kim, the hard-hitting Lee (121¾) became the IBF champion in his fourth attempt at a world title when he outsped and outboxed the tough Muangsurin (121½), who was always dangerous with his round-arm lefts and rights. Showing great defence Lee avoided the vast majority of blows coming his way, and in the ninth round stepped on the pedal with a burst of punches that left Muangsurin helpless on the ropes where he was rescued by a compassionate referee at 2.25 of the session.
