1988-05-09 [[Khaokor Galaxy]] w pts 12 [[Wilfredo Vazquez]], Hua Mark Stadium, Bangkok, Thailand - WBA. Referee: Nate Morgan. Scorecards: 115-112, 115-113, 113-114. Joining his twin brother, Khaosai, as a world champion, Galaxy (118) survived a fifth-round knockdown to come through, roared on by the home crowd. The hard-punching Vazquez (117½), confused somewhat by the challenger’s southpaw stance, failed to take advantage of the badly hurt Galaxy in the fifth and tired badly as the durable Thai stuck to his boxing, scoring well with right hooks and straight lefts. Although Vazquez landed quality punches throughout, they were few and far between and the result appeared to be a just one.
