In Round Two, Torkeb attempted to close the distance by changing his attack to low kicks. He was able to land some clean shots, but Phunkorn replied to these with solid body kicks and teeps.
The third round saw both fighters starting to exchange body kicks, with Torkeb throwing heavy punches again in an effort to knock Phunkorn out. However, Phunkorn was able to control the distance and stay out the way by using teeps and left kicks.
Sensing urgency, Torkeb came out swinging in the fourth round, throwing barrages of punches and low kicks to try and hurt Phunkorn. It was to no heed as our fighter kept his composure and landed a solid left knee which stunned and winded Torkeb. As the round went on, Torkeb was visibly tired from his failed knockout attempts.
