Sod's first two world title fights came when he was fighting under the name Sod Looknongyangtoy and both came against Mexican slugger Daniel Ponce De Leon. The first actually came, rather amazingly, on a card stacked with Thai's fighting Mexicans including 4 world title fights!
Of the two Sod/De Leon fights it was the first bout which was the more interesting, by a long way.
The bout was fought on October 29th 2005 in Arizona USA and it was Sod's first bout outside of Thailand. Despite the travel Sod gave an incredible effort and really pushed Ponce De Leon all the way, including knocking him down in round 2 and taking the fight to him for vast swathes of the exciting encounter. It wasn't always a pretty fight but both men threw plenty of leather both fought portions of the bout with the intention of getting a knockout, often missing wildly as a result.
Sadly for Sod his effort in a very close bout was over-looked by the judging which seemed to be ridiculously against him, in fact 1 judge managed to give Sod just a single round, the second. It seemed clear from the post fight reactions of both men, and the crowd, that Sod had managed to at least make things very close and the wide cards lead to a rematch being fought just 9 months later. Sadly for Sod that bout didn't go so well.
