1 May Veeraphol Sahaprom w rsc 12 Julio Cesar Avila, Temporary Stadium, Nong Khai, Thailand - WBC. Referee: David Chung. Although the challenger boxed reasonably well in the opening two rounds, after he had been dropped by a right uppercut to the stomach in the third Sahaprom (118) began to dominate as his attacks to the body paid dividends. Straying low in the eighth cost Sahaprom a point on the cards and gave Avila (117½) a five-minute rest after he was badly hurt, but back in the fray there was no let up for the latter. Having being floored in the tenth and 12th rounds, Avila was pulled out at 1.10 of the final session when his corner indicated to the referee that their man had taken too much punishment.
