15 December Tim Austin w pts 12 Ratanachai Sorvoraphin, Foxwoods Casino, Mashantucket, Connecticut, USA - IBF. Referee: Michael Ortega. Scorecards: 115-112, 118-109, 117-110. In a match-up between fellow southpaws, Austin (118) was less aggressive as usual and relied on safety-first tactics to keep his title against the ever dangerous, but limited Sorvoraphin (118). It was the right jab, ably supported by the straight left and left uppercut that did it for Austin.
