Cheam Adam outpointed Phan Sothy and Sok Ratha won by second-round disqualification Saturday to advance into the semifinals of CTN’s Kun Khmer Tournament of Champions. Phan Sothy (8-3-0) cut Cheam Adam (29-7-2) early with elbows, on the left temple in the first round and across the nose in the second, but a bloody Cheam Adam battled back, hurting Phan Sothy in the later rounds with kicks to the body and nearly putting him down in the fourth round. In the co-feature, Sok Ratha (6-3) could not recover from a low blow, prompting referee The Sarin to disqualify Seung Kangsan (24-3-9). Semifinals are scheduled for October 10 at the CTN boxing arena. Khun Makara will face Cheam Adam, and Sok Ratha will go against Poy Neurn.
