1997-05-31 Saman Sorjaturong w rsc 4 Mzukisi Marali, Provincial Stadium, Petchaboon, Thailand - WBC. Referee: Jose Medina. Although Marali (107½) put up a spirited showing, taking the fight to Sorjaturong (107½) and having some success in the second and third rounds, ultimately it was the champion’s power that made sure the title did not change hands. The end came in the fourth. Having been decked heavily by an uppercut and then subjected to a hammering, the referee stepped in at 2.13 to save Marali from taking further punishment.
