2003-08-15 Jesus Chavez w pts 12 Sirimongkol Singmanasak, Convention Centre, Austin, Texas, USA - WBC. Referee: Laurence Cole. Scorecards: 118-110, 117-111, 117-111. Attacking the muscular champion with dangerous left hooks to the body, Chavez (130) quickly stated his intent as he tracked his rival from the opening bell, but it was only in the fifth round that both men got off some serious punches to head and body. Although Singmanasak (130) threw some pretty good shots himself in the latter half of the fight he was being outworked, and when he really opened up in the final couple of sessions it was all too little, too late.
