With Rojas (125½) attacking the body and Payakaroon replying with solid lefts and uppercuts that appeared to weaken the Venezuelan it was anybody’s fight, and in the eighth Rojas sent in a stream of right uppercuts to the body which sent the Thai to his knees for a count of ‘eight’. Back on his feet, Payakaroon looked done in and after being dropped again the fight was stopped 55 seconds into the round.
