PHNOM PENH - Cheng Rithy weathered a fourth-round charge from Reachaksey Baba Sunday to earn the decision at TV5 Stadium in Phnom Penh. Reachaksey Baba, fighting from the Ministry of Interior boxing club, cut Cheng Rithy with an elbow early in the fourth, but he didn't have enough left in the fifth to defeat the number one ranked fighter at 54kg. The fighters had met twice previously, with Cheng Rithy from Salavorn Sports Club winning their most recent encounter after their first matchup ended in a draw.
