1999-02-20 Pichit Chor Siriwat w pts 12 Jomo Gamboa, Chaweng Beach Arena, Koh Samui, Thailand - WBA. Referee: Waldemar Schmidt. Scorecards: 118-112, 119-110, 116-112. After entering the arena on elephants, both men got down to work, with Chor Siriwat (108) the faster and Gamboa (108) looking for an early win but not doing enough work. Although he had to take occasional punishment, the champion’s speed and movement kept him ahead of the sluggish Gamboa, especially over the last five rounds.
