1997-03-29 Ricardo Lopez w pts 12 Mongkol Charoen, Hilton Centre, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - WBC. Referee: Jay Nady. Scorecards: 120-107, 119-108, 120-107. Outpunched and outfought, the southpaw Charoen (105) bravely survived the full 12 rounds to bring to an end the champion’s eight straight inside the distance defences. Hit with every punch in the manual by Lopez (105), and more, the little Thai was given a standing ovation at the final bell for his bravery.
