1996-11-24 Ratanapol Sor Vorapin w rsc 2 Gustavo Vera, Regional Soccer Stadium, Udonthani, Thailand - IBF. Referee: Boonruang Thakamfoo. The champion made a quick start, sending Vera (104) crashing in the first session. Somehow, the Venezuelan made it through the round before being put under huge pressure in the second as Sor Vorapin (104) resumed his offensive, and a ferocious right hook followed by a heavy left saw him take a mandatory ‘eight’ count. On rising at 2.35, the referee called it off when it was plain to see that Vera was not capable of defending himself.
