Legend Ei Phouthang outpunches Sorn Elit

Local kickboxing veteran Ei Phouthang beat Cambodia’s SEA Games silver-medal winning Taekwondo fighter Sorn Elit on Saturday in a special English boxing bout at TV3 Boxing arena. Ei Phouthang was awarded the victory with a score of 175-167 by judges over Elit, who won the silver at the 2009 Games in Vientiane. Elit has been competing for Cambodia in Taekwondo for four years and is also a student of Vovinam. Also on Saturday’s card at TV3, the fight between Ngeth Ratha and Phy Sophors was stopped in the fifth round after the boxers appeared to show a lack of contest. Head judge Meas Sokry, who is also Ratha’s trainer, told referee Tes Sarin to end the bout early.
