Brief: Long Sophy takes lead

PHNOM PENH - Club Salavorn mainstay Long Sophy beat Club Eh Phoutang fighter Song Saruth on points in the first of two lightweight tournament fights Sunday at CTN. Long Sophy chased Song Saruth around the ring for most of the five-round contest, and Song Saruth showed little interest in mixing it up after appearing to get hurt with knees in the third round. The win moves Long Sophy into first place in the tournament with a record of 2-0, one coming by knockout. Kao Roomchang is behind him with 2 wins and no knockouts. In the second fight, Naem Chenda moved to 1-1 with a decision victory over Nuon Mony, who dropped to 0-2. Coming up this Sunday at CTN boxing arena, Van Chanvey takes on a dangerous Vung Noy, and Kao Roomchang faces long-shot Bheut Bunthoen.
