2001-03-02 [[Pongsaklek Wonjongkam]] w rsc 1 [[Malcolm Tunacao]], Open Air Arena, Pichit, Thailand - WBC. Referee: Kim-Jae Bong. Although the bigger man, Tunacao (112) was backed to the ropes and dropped by a heavy right almost immediately the fight had got underway. Put down again by a left-right, following the mandatory ‘eight’ count the southpaw champion bravely tried to fight back but Wonjongkam (112), also a portsider, was having none of it, finding another big right to bring matters to a halt on the 2.42 mark when the referee had seen enough.
