American kickboxer Sean Housman (Angkor Boxing Club) suffered his

first defeat Saturday to more experienced Ministry of Interior fighter

Heng Bunloak at CTN TV station. The 62kg bout saw both participants

sustain cuts and eight-counts in an energetic opening round with Heng

Bunloak taking command in the second with kicks that closed down

Housman’s punches. The Cambodian exhibited superiority in the clinch

with powerful knees to the body that inflicted a further three

eight-counts, leaving the referee no choice but to declare him the

winner by stoppage halfway through the round due to the three-knockdown

rule.
