In what was a surprise, the aggressive challenger won the title by pounding the inexplicably lethargic Sorjaturong (108) for nine rounds before having to weather the last three sessions when the Thai finally came to life. There was no doubting that Choi (108) had Sorjaturong’s number when able to outpunch and outbox the champion to pile up the points, but it was a shock just the same.
