The Thai champion (44-4-1) controlled the early rounds and withstood a late charge from Mexico's Estrada (36-3), leading to a dynamite 12th round that brought the lively crowd of 7,827 to its feet.

Sor Rungvisai, a near unknown in international boxing two years ago, has won 18 consecutive bouts, including two defenses of the title he took from Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez in a major upset last year.

Puerto Rico's McWilliams Arroyo won a majority decision over Mexico's Carlos Cuadras in the 115-pound penultimate bout of the latest "Superfly" show at the Forum. Donnie Nietes of the Philippines also defended his IBF flyweight title with a seventh-round stoppage of Argentina's Juan Carlos Reveco.

Sor Rungvisai won the bout 117-111 and 115-113 on two cards, and a third scored it 114-114.

"It was a very good fight," Sor Rungvisai said. "He hits very hard, and I like his style, but I know I won the fight."

The quicker Estrada got off to a strong start to thrill the pro-Mexican crowd, but Sor Rungvisai asserted his combination of body shots, counterpunching and head movement. Sor Rungvisai tagged Estrada repeatedly in the middle rounds, but Estrada put together a strong flurry in the eighth to begin a surge.

Estrada appeared to win several late rounds with faster hands. Both boxers fought desperately in the 12th, and both were raised in victory by their cornermen after the bell.

[QUOTE=devildg;18517846]estrada got his ass handed to him by a Thai Maidana.....Thai-dana[/QUOTE] Maidana is a poor **** compared with Rungvisai. Estrada ended the fight with his face clean, the thai looked like a frog. The rematch will be immediate

I thought it could’ve gone either way, but that 117-111 score! You’re telling me that judge only saw Estrada winning three rounds! I don’t know why hbo and people here made such a big deal of the canelo score vs…
