1996-07-13 Ratanapol Sor Vorapin w co 3 Jun Orhaliza, Provincial Coliseum, Chiang Mai, Thailand - IBF. Referee: Boonruang Thakamfoo. Under pressure from a fine array of hooks and uppercuts right from the opening bell, Orhaliza (104) somehow stayed upright in the first round and even fought back strongly in the second. However, in the third the challenger’s luck ran out as Sor Vorapin (104½) connected with powerful hooks to head and body. The end came when a thunderous blow to Orhaliza’s jaw put him down for the full count on the 0.35 mark.
