        Other winners included Saw Phoe Tun, who won his 57-61 kg semifinal fight against Khun Phit of Thailand, despite a cut to the head that bled heavily throughout the match, and Ye Ta Gon, who won his 62-66 kg bout against Saw Min Aung.Yesterday's matches were broadcast live on the Action Channel of Canal+, a pay TV channel based in France that launched in Myanmar in February in collaboration with Myanmar media company Forever Group.
