Viva las victorious


Cambodia’s Vorn Viva (right) lands an elbow to the head of Thailand’s Phet Taksin during their bout in ‘The Best of ASEAN’ international fight card yesterday at CTN Arena.

In the first of yesterday’s fights, Em Litho lost a points decision to Laos boxer Seuaphom Thongbang.


However, parity was quickly restored when Long Sophy stopped Malaysia’s Mohamad Rafi Abdul Mana in the third round of their contest, which was to be the night’s only knockout.

Paddy Moeunsophea then pushed Cambodia into the lead when he claimed a decision victory over Thailand’s Samsamut.

Em Vutha became the second boxer to succumb to a Laotian opponent, Noukhith.

But Sen Bunthen had the home crowd roaring again when he edged Tanasak of Thailand on points.

In the main event, ISKA Kin Khmer World Middleweight Champion Vorn Viva clinched the bragging rights for the host nation with a points win over Thai brawler Phet Taksin.
