1990-12-09 Khaosai Galaxy w rsc 6 Ernesto Ford, Physical Education College Stadium, Petchabun, Thailand - WBA. Referee: Waldemar Schmidt. Overpowered from the start, Ford (114), despite being caught heavily with solid lefts, managed to get through the first five rounds mainly by boxing on the back foot and making good use of the ring. However, Ford’s number was up at 2.30 of the sixth when Galaxy (115) exploded a heavy left to the jaw, leaving the challenger on his knees and the referee not even bothering to take up the count.
