1993-06-27 Ratanapol Sor Vorapin w rtd 7 Ala Villamor, National Stadium, Bangkok, Thailand - IBF. Referee: Pinit Prayadsab. After being floored twice, Villamor (102) was saved from taking further punishment at the hands of Sor Vorapin (104) when his corner threw the towel in at 2.01 of the seventh round. Up until then the contest had been extremely one-sided, it coming as a welcome relief when the previously unbeaten challenger was pulled out.
