11 January Veeraphol Sahaprom w pts 12 Sergio Perez, Future Park, Thanyaburi, Thailand - WBC. Referee: Malcom Bulner. Scorecards:116-113, 118-111, 120-108. Outboxing and outpunching Perez (117) throughout, Sahaprom (118) easily defended his title while walking to a shut-out win. However, although one-sided he failed to drop the switch-hitting Perez, who was forced into survival mode for most of the time, and possibly should have closed the challenger down well before the fight ran its course.
