1987-02-28 Khaosai Galaxy w co 14 (15) Elly Pical, Senayan Football Stadium, Jakarta, Indonesia - WBA. Referee: Ken Morita. Although it was expected to be a southpaw battle royal it did not materialise as such and, apart from the opening round, it was clear that Pical (114½) was wary of the champion’s power. With Galaxy (114½) attacking the body, by the 13th it was obviously going to be only a matter of time and just when the referee was about to step in to rescue the beleaguered Pical in the 14th he was taken out by a terrific left to the liver, the count being a mere formality.
