The 20-year-old southpaw prospect has been coached by Cuban trainer Ismael Salas, who successfully advised him to make short work of it. Mori, managed by ex-WBC bantam champ Yasuei Yakushiji, caught the Thailander with a southpaw right hook and floored him in the third session. Though he resumed fighting back, Mori connected with a well-timed and well-targeted body shot, which had him down in agony for the count.
