1994-05-08 Pichit Sithbanprachan w pts 12 Jose Luis Zepeda, Municipal Stadium, Ratchaburi, Thailand - IBF. Referee: Abraham Pacheco. Scorecards: 115-113, 115-113, 112-115. In a fight that ebbed back and forth, Sithbanprachan (112) was often outpunched by Zepeda (110) and was considered fortunate by many to have retained the title.

Sithbanprachan relinquished the IBF version of the title in November due to extended inactivity and Francisco Tejedor was matched against Jose Luis Zepeda in order to provide a new champion.
