In 1981 we unfortunately saw Thailand's Netrnoi Sor Vorasingh fail in an attempt to claim the WBC Light Flyweight as he was stopped by the excellent Hilario Zapata of Panama. For the Thai this was an attempt to regain a title he had held in 1978 and sadly it seemed to be the start of the end for the That who would win just one of his following 3 bouts before retired in 1982 follow a loss to the then debuting Samart Payakaroon.
In 1993 Katsuya Onizuka recorded his 4th defense of the WBA Super Flyweight as he over-came Thailand's Thanomsak Sithbaobay, the same man he had beaten for the title back in 1992. Sadly Onizuka would make just one more defense before losing to Hyung Ch Lee via a 9th round TKO and retiring with a record of 24-1 (17). For the Thai this was his third and final shot at a world title, sadly for him it was his third failure in a world title bout.
The most recent bout of note came in 1994 when Thailand's Chana Porpaoin recorded the 6th defense of the WBA Minimumweight title with a very narrow decision over Manuel Jesus Herrera. This win saw Chana extending his winning run to 33 and he would add two more defences before being beaten, in December 1995, by Rosendo Alvarez. Chana would later regain the title in 2001 and remained a notable contender until 2005 when he dropped off the radar he retired around 2007 after having won 53 of his 63 career bouts.
