1980-01-27 Yoko Gushiken w pts 15 Yong-Hyun Kim, Prefectural Gym, Osaka, Japan - WBA. Referee: Paul Field. Scorecards: 149-141, 150-140, 148-144. Showing great technique, Gushiken (107½) retained his title against a tough battler in Kim (107½), who despite what the scorecards said was always dangerous. In the tenth round the champion was badly cut on the forehead from an accidental head butt, and from then on it was safety first and self preservation that won the day.
