In the first fight, National Defence Ministry Club boxer
Sarim Nga was defeated on points by Thorng Bang of Laos in their
54-kilogram fight. Kratie club’s Chhay Meas then saw the judges decision
go is his favour in the 60-kilogram bout against Chinese brawler Cho
Nivorng.

Ministry of Agriculture Club’s Chhet Ngoy put Cambodia
one up by means of another points decision in a comical 51-kilogram
fight against diminutive Lak Chhay of Thailand, who punches could hardly
reach the chin of his opponent.

The day’s only draw came in the
following 57-kilogram match between Reachsey Anti-drug Club’s Reachasey
Chanra and Laotian boxer Nou Khit.

Chhang Phoeuk, in the fourth round of their 54-kilogram bout.
