Cambodia prevailed, but only just, at Bayon TV’s ‘Khmer Fighter’ event at Beeline Arena on Friday.
Four international bouts were reduced to three when Brazilian Pachero failed to show, resulting in a reshuffle of the match-ups.
In the opening fight, Ung Vireak struck one for the host nation as he hammered the leg of French opponent Sebatioe Billro with kicks to force him to retire in the fourth round.
Em Vutha then put Cambodia 2-0 up with a second round TKO of Italian Simone. However, Raphael Boch of France managed to salvage a consolatory win for the away side by knocking out Vong Noy in the second round.
