February 20th 1985- Alexandra Palace, Wood Green, London, United Kingdom
Sot Chitalada (7-1, 5) Vs Charlie Magri (29-3, 22)
We don't see many Asian fighters travelling to the UK to defend titles, it's certainly not the norm. Though saying that Sot Chitalada was not the normal Asian fighter he was a man who in his 5th bout went to South Korea and gave the great Jung-Koo Chang hell and less than a year later went to the UK to defend the WBC Flyweight title against former champion Charlie Magri. So unique was Sot that in a 31 fight career he defended world titles in Kuwait, Japan, South Korea and Jamaica, as well as the UK. In regards to this particular fight it was Sot's first defence and came just 4 months after he had narrowly out pointed Gabriel Bernal for the title.
