1994-11-05 Chana Porpaoin w pts 12 Manuel Jesus Herrera, Municipal School Gym, Hat Yai, Thailand - WBA. Referee: Tasaki Hiroyuki. Scorecards: 115-113, 115-112, 112-114. For the first three rounds Herrera (103¾) piled up points with accurate one-twos, before cutting the champion’s left eye in the fourth and then being punished from left hooks to head and body. In the sixth session Porpaoin (105) was dropped for the mandatory ‘eight’ count, but came back strongly to dominate the remainder of the contest. Having been deducted a point for holding in the 11th, Herrera was put under systematic pressure until the final bell.
