We're going to do things a little different for today's "On this Day" article, and rather than looking at a number of events in some detail we'll talk about just one, and include a video, with a few more events under the video.
On this day in 1990 fight fans at the Lumpinee Boxing Stadium in Bangkok saw national star Sot Chitalada (then 19-2-1, 13) defending the WBC Flyweight title against Filipino challenger Ric Siodora (then 14-2-1, 2).
Chitalada was making his first defense of his second reign, having reclaimed the title from Korean nemesis Yong Kang Kim in their second meeting. Siodora on the other hand was getting his first world title bout, and fighting outside of the Philippines for the first time. He was the clear under-dog, but hadn't travelled to roll over to the hard hitting champion.
Here is the full fight:
