The Davao City-born Loreto was actually the busier fighter early in the bout, but the Thai pressed the action beginning in the third round.

In the 10th, Niyomtrong floored Loreta with a right cross. The Filipino tried to rally in the last two rounds, but it wasn't enough to get the judges' nod.

Thammanoon remained undefeated in 16 bouts, while Loreto fell to his 14th defeat in 37 fights.
