Pongsaklek, who knocked Morales down in the first round, never looked back, sending blistering combinations to the body and face and consistently catching the opposing fighter off balance.

In the second round, Pongsaklek opened a cut over the Mexican‘s right eye, setting a trail of blood streaming down the challenger‘s face that a quick patching-up in the corner could stop just temporarily.

In the brutal third round, Pongsaklek used a flurry of punches that bloodied his 10-ranked opponent. Backing him into the ropes, Pongsaklek moved in, delivering a barrage of blows to Morales‘ head that resulted in blood splattering the ringside crowd.

Morales absorbed punch after punch before referee Bill Clancy from the United States stopped the match to have the fight doctor check Morales‘ cuts. After a few seconds, the fight was halted and Pongsaklek declared the winner

Pongsaklek Wonjongkam of Thailand retained his WBC flyweight title when an injury to Japanese challenger Daisuke Naito led to stoppage of their bout in the seventh round Monday.

A punch from Pongsaklek in the second round left a cut just above the right eye of Naito, whose bleeding caused the fight to end at 2 minutes, 38 seconds of the seventh.

Pongsaklek improved to 58-2 with 31 knockouts. Naito dropped to 27-2-2 with 19 knockouts. Pongsaklek won the title in March 2001. His last defense was in January of this year.

The last time the two boxers met, Naito was knocked out by the Thai champion after just 34 seconds of the first round in April 2002. It was the quickest a Japanese boxer has ever lost by knockout in a world title fight.
