2005-10-29 Daniel Ponce De Leon w pts 12 Sod Looknongyangtoy, Desert Diamond Casino, Tucson, Arizona, USA - WBO. Referee: Lou Moret. Scorecards: 118-109, 115-112, 115-112. Contested for the vacant title, Looknongyangtoy (121½) struck first when he knocked Ponce De Leon (121) down with a right hook to the head in the second session, but from thereon it was a fairly even battle between quality southpaws. With Ponce De Leon the busier and more accurate of the pair, especially with the jab, and the Thai being the harder puncher it made for an interesting fight. First one then the other took over in preceding rounds and many thought that Looknongyangtoy deserved something from the fight, but despite most of the rounds appearing to be very close, apart from the second, the judges gave the loser just four rounds.
