2000-02-05 Pichit Chor Siriwat w pts 12 Sang-Ik Yang, Mall Department Store, Bangkok, Thailand - WBA. Referee: Derek Milham. Scorecards: 120-110, 118-111, 115-113. Displaying superior speed and ring craft to dominate his fellow southpaw, Chor Siriwat (108) continuously outmanoeuvred the taller Yang (108), who was unable to get into range and often flailed away hopelessly. Despite being out of the ring for almost a year, Siriwat had too much of everything for the challenger to overcome.
After Siriwat forfeited the WBA version of the title in July 2000 for failing to meet Rosendo Alvarez within the given time frame, Alvarez and Beibis Mendoza were matched to contest the vacancy.
