1980-08-02 Hilmer Kenty w rsc 9 (15) Young-Ho Oh, Joe Louis Arena, Detroit, Michigan, USA - WBA. Referee: Ernesto Magana. Showing great skill, the champion dominated proceedings as he continually outboxed and outpunched Oh (134½) with left jabs, left hooks, and right uppercuts to head and body finding their mark in every session. Somehow, Oh stood up to the non-stop barrage of blows coming his way with great fortitude, but in the ninth he finally buckled before being rescued by the referee at 2.15 of the round when he was taking punches without return as Kenty (135) went for the finish.
