Having terrible problems in making the weight, Galaxy (115), knocked down early on. Despite not being at his best Galaxy still had too much for Payakarun (114½) and pressed the challenger throughout, being just too strong and aggressive for him. Payakarun showed up well, but was unable to assert himself to any great degree.
