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, and although he was unable to catch up with the elusive Arlos he won by a wide margin.
