1996-04-27 Saman Sorjaturong w rsc 7 Jomo Gamboa, Regional Stadium, Maha Sarakam, Thailand - WBC. Referee: Vince Delgado. Six action-packed rounds saw the challenger on the move, scoring well with sharp lefts and rights, while after a poor start Sorjaturong (108) got himself together in the fourth when beginning to cut the ring down. The end was clearly in sight in the sixth as Gamboa (108) took two mandatory ‘eight’ counts after being badly hurt by body shots. Into the seventh, with Sorjaturong belting away unmercifully it came as no surprise when Gamboa was rescued by the referee on the 0.26 mark.
