1993-05-09 Chana Porpaoin w pts 12 Carlos Murillo, Outdoor Arena, Ang Thong, Thailand - WBA. Referee: Waldemar Schmidt. Scorecards: 117-113, 117-112, 117-111. Porpaoin (105), who had to go to the scales four times in order to make the weight, boxed with a view to conserve his energy. Although Murillo (104¾) occasionally did well on the inside, as the challenger he was always second best when it came to punching power and under different circumstances would probably have been stopped.
