It was an explosive battle for 12 rounds, in which the experienced Pongsaklek did everything he needed to win the bout.
Takuya was faster, and had better technique at a distance, but the veteran champion worked better when counter-attacking, and took advantage of the mistakes of his rival, landing more demolishing left hooks.
There were no knockdowns in the bout.
The official scores were: Mr. Stephen Blea (USA) 118-110; Mr. Jae bon Kim (Korea) 116-112 and Mr. F. Marty, (Switzerland) 117-
111, all in favor of Pongsaklek Wonjongkam.
Pongsaklek is now awaiting the former WBC Light Flyweight champion, and current WBC International Flyweight champion Edgar Sosa, who fights this Saturday in Mexico.
