1990-07-29 Michael Carbajal w rsc 7 Muangchai Kittikasem, Veteran’s Memorial Auditorium, Phoenix, Arizona, USA - IBF. Referee: Bobby Ferrara. Although suffering from weight-making problems, Kittikasem (108) did well to stay in the fight despite being consistently outgunned, and cut Carbajal (108) over the left eye in the fourth before the challenger unloaded to drop the Thai with a short left uppercut. Kittikasem somehow held on during the next two rounds, but in the seventh a heavy right hand dropped him face first and the referee immediately waived it off on the 14 second mark.
