2004-08-07 Yodsanan Sor Nanthachai w pts 12 Steve Forbes, Foxwoods Resort Casino, Mashantucket, Connecticut, USA - WBA. Referee: Steve Smoger. Scorecards: 117-111, 117-111, 117-111. Now calling himself ‘Yodsanan 3K Battery’, the southpaw champion kept Forbes (130) on the back foot throughout, continually sending in straight rights and left crosses while the latter struggled to find any rhythm. Even when Forbes managed to get his punches off Sor Nanthachai (130) replied with swift counters, and it was not until the seventh and eighth rounds that the former got some joy on the inside with short right hands to the head in an effort to get back into the fight. However, there was to be no breakthrough after Sor Nanthachai came roaring back with heavy combinations to Forbes’ head and body to win by the same margin on all three officials’ cards.
