Pich Seyha draws after late charge by Ung Virak

Pich Seyha failed to avenge his loss to Ung Virak at the recent National Boxing Championships when he drew their 67-kilogram kickboxing bout at the TV3 boxing arena on Saturday. Seyha had won over the crowd with some powerful punches during the third and fourth rounds, but suffered a devastating elbow in the final round that split open his eyebrow. “If I hadn’t fought    the fifth round, I would have won by unanimous decision,” Pich Seyha said, admitting that the cut to his forehead had allowed Ung Virak to sneak a draw on points. “It’s no problem,” he said.  TRANSLATED BY IN SOPHENG
