1998-12-04 Manny Pacquiao w co 8 Chatchai Sasakul, Tonsuk College Ground, Bangkok, Thailand - WBC. Referee: Malcolm Bulner. Seemingly boxing his way to a points win, Sasakul (112) continued to take risks despite being hurt in the fourth round by a solid southpaw left. Ignoring the warning, he was ultimately made to pay when the challenging Pacquiao (112) unloaded an explosive left hook to the jaw in the eighth. Unable to rise, Sasakul was counted out with six seconds of the round remaining.
