2000-08-05 Eric Morel w pts 12 Sornpichai Kratingdaenggym, Alliant Energy Centre, Madison, Wisconsin, USA - WBA. Referee: Dick Bartman. Scorecards: 120-107, 118-109, 117-109. Having a massive four-inch reach advantage, Morel (111) made full use of it as he allowed Kratingdaenggym (111¾) to chase after him to no avail. A squat little southpaw, the champion was constantly speared by long punches as well as being hooked off the jab. In lacking the ability needed to get to the body, it was no surprise that Kratingdaenggym went down to a comprehensive points defeat.
