2006-02-16 Pongsaklek Wonjongkam w pts 12 Gilberto Keb Baas, The Open Air Arena, Chainart, Thailand - WBC. Referee: Bruce McTavish. Scorecards: 119-110, 120-109, 120-109. On 8 April at the Thomas & Mack Centre, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, Jorge Arce (111) outpointed Nicaragua’s Rosendo Alvarez (115) over 12 rounds. Supposed to be a defence of Arce’s WBC ‘interim’ honours, the title was not at stake after Alvarez failed to make the required weight. Following that, Arce was quick to move up a weight division.
