2000-08-05 Eric Morel w pts 12 Sornpichai Pisanurachan, Alliant Energy Centre, Madison, Wi, 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 Pisanurachan (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 and was unable to get inside. In lacking the ability needed to get to the body, it was no surprise that Pisanurachan went down to a comprehensive points defeat.
