1996-05-18 [[Ratanapol Sor Vorapin]] w pts 12 [[Jun Arlos]], Provincial Stadium, Yala, Thailand - IBF. Referee: Montol Suriyachand. Scorecards: 120-107, 118-109, 120-107. Given an early chance to contest the vacant title after he had been stripped of it when failing to make the weight for [[Lee Sandoval]], Sor Vorapin (104) quickly got into his stride as Arlos (101¾) retreated, but in the fourth round a cut over his right eye saw him being less impetuous. Despite standing back for a while, it did not take long for Sor Vorapin to resume the attack, although he was unable to catch up with the elusive Arlos and had to settle for the points.
