Junior Flyweight Samson Sor Siriporn [Siriporn Taweesuk] won a 10-round majority decision over Kayoko Ebata, 1-1-0.  This bout was for the WBC junior flyweight belt, where Siriporn [Taweesuk] was defending her title. Neither of these boxers are rated with WBAN in our world ratings.  In a news article [xinhuanet] they wrote that Cambodia was chosen as the host of the bout, between Japanese boxer Kayoko Ebata and Thai boxer Samson Sor Siriporn, that they were quoting from a WBC Press Release.  According to xinhuanet, the press release said that the two boxers wanted to compete in a neutral country, therefore WBC selected Cambodia. Also that the match would have three judges and an American arbitrator, Gene Debianco.  The fight was apparently televised on Cambodian Television Channel 5. On the ABS-News website they reported the following: "Former convict-turned boxer Samson Sor Siriporn retained her World Boxing Council light flyweight title by beating Japanese challenger Kayoko Ebata.
The 24-year-old champion, whose real name is Siriporn Taweesuk, looked passive in the early rounds before she began to fight back, landing many blows on Ebata's face in the middle of 10th round. The judges gave Siriporn the victory, scoring the bout 97:95, 95:95, 96:94."   [Logged into master search]
