1990-11-29 Luisito Espinosa w pts 12 Thanomsak Sithboabay, Rajadamnern Stadium, Bangkok, Thailand - WBA. Referee: Richard Steele. Scorecards: 117-112, 116-114, 115-113. Displaying excellent punching power, Espinosa (118) dropped Sithboabay (118) with a well-timed left-right combination in the fourth round before going on to pound out a solid points victory, his extra reach making life difficult for the challenger. Cut on the right eye in the sixth, Sithboabay gave it everything and the last four rounds became a war zone as he tried to find the punches to finish Espinosa off, but to no avail.
