2011-10-24 Akira Yaegashi w rsc 10 Pornsawan Porpramook, Korakuen Hall, Tokyo, Japan - WBA. Referee: Erkki Meronen.

In a fight for the vacant WBA ‘interim’ title, Paipharob Kokietgym outpointed Jesus Silvestre over 12 rounds in Wat That Municipality, Nong Khai, Thailand on 7 November. Having been arrested on suspicion of trafficking in January 2012, Kokietgym was subsequently stripped of his title in May by the WBA due to his legal issues and apparent inability to make a defense.
