1995-01-28 Chana Porpaoin w pts 12 Jin-Ho Kim, National Stadium, Bangkok, Thailand - WBA. Referee: Larry Rozadilla. Scorecards: 118-112, 118-112, 117-112. The opening two rounds saw the challenger make good use of his longer reach while Porpaoin (105) looked to counter, but in the third he was cut over the left eye and was then put under the cosh until the latter was also cut, under the left eye, in the fifth. Then, Kim (105) came on strongly, cutting Porpaoin over the right eye in the seventh, before the latter came back to pepper his man with a variety of punches that put him back in the driving seat. The last three rounds saw the champion retreat behind the jab as Kim chased him in vain.
