1995-05-20 Ratanapol Sor Vorapin w rtd 2 Oscar Alfonso Flores, Municipal Soccer Stadium, Chiang Mai, Thailand - IBF. Referee: Bobby Ferrara. Leaping into action from the opening bell, Sor Vorapin (104½) began cracking in right-lefts and soon had a result as a hefty left hook to the body put the challenger down for a mandatory ‘eight’ count. In the second, Sor Vorapin picked up where he left off and Flores (105) was soon floored for another ‘eight’ count. The end was in sight, and after heavy punches to head and body dropped Flores for ‘six’ his corner signalled the end with 1.52 of the round gone.
