1996-12-15 Saman Sorjaturong w pts 12 Manuel Jesus Herrera, Provincial Stadium, Changrai, Thailand - WBC. Referee: James Jen-Kin. Scorecards: 116-112, 114-113, 115-113. In a gruelling but often exciting contest, Sorjaturong (108) made a good start and built up a handy lead before Herrera (107¼) came back with some heavy punches of his own. However, the champion proved his good condition by standing up to the hail of leather coming his way and fighting back strongly to well deserve the decision.
