2002-02-21 Yoddamrong Sithyodthong w pts 12 Yober Ortega, Wat Banrai Temple, Nakhon, Thailand - WBA. Referee: Armando Garcia. Scorecards: 117-112, 118-111, 116-112. Although the hard-hitting southpaw champion made a fair start, taking the first three rounds, Sithyodthong (122) soon began to solve his style and came on strong himself in the fourth and fifth when landing sharp rights and lefts to head and body. From that point on Sithyodthong was in charge, scoring with accurate counters as Ortega (122) kept running on to the punches and being unable to turn the tide in his favour.
