1997-06-14 Ratanapol Sor Vorapin 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 speed and countering a champion who was often wild. There was far too much clinching and holding, but Sor Vorapin (105) rightly received the decision for his aggression.
