1996-08-10 Saman Sorjaturong w rsc 9 Shiro Yahiro, Football Stadium, Phitsanulok, Thailand - WBC. Referee: Lupe Garcia. Seemingly flat and uninspired, Sorjaturong (107½) struggled to keep his title as Yahiro (107¾), very tall at the weight, took his best punches without blinking. However, in the ninth round a clubbing right hand cut Yahiro badly above the eyes and the fight was called off on the 1.39 mark, the injury being deemed as too serious for the challenger to continue.
