In Brief: Sam Ournluorng is Kun Khmer Champion

In the final showdown of the second season of Kun Khmer Champion, the CTN reality boxing series, Prey Veng's Sam Ournluorng flattened Siem Reap's Puy Neurn in the fourth round to win by TKO. Puy Neurn held up well in the early rounds, but as the Siem Reap native started to tire, Sam Ournluorng started landing power shots cleanly. The first eight-count came from a solid head kick in the fourth. Somehow, Puy Neurn beat the count, but then seconds later, with Puy Neurn exhausted and his hands held low, Sam Ournluorng turned his lights out with a straight right hand.
