Sophon wins, Sophy loses in Brazilian bouts

Cambodian southpaw Rieng Sophon stunned his Brazilian opponent Jose Neto on Sunday at TV3 arena, landing a flurry of punches and kicks to prevail by judges’ decision.

Meanwhile, Sophon’s compatriot Long Sophy was stopped in round three by a vicious series of knees to the face from another Samba fighter Anday Ton, who had beaten Thailand’s Pongthong Jetsada in 2012 to claim the CBF title at TV3.
