1997-06-14 Ratanapol Sorvoraphin w pts 12 Juan Herrera, Provincial Stadium, Nakhon, Thailand - IBF. Referee: Billy Males. Scorecards: 115-113, 116-111, 117-109. Having taken a standing ‘eight’ count before being dropped for ‘nine’ in the third round, Herrera (105) got himself back into the fight by relying on his speed and countering the champion, who was often wild. There was far too much clinching and holding, but Sorvoraphin (105) made the running all the way and rightly received the decision for his aggression.
