1982-11-28 Rafael Orono w rsc 6 (15) Chul-Ho Kim, Changchung Gym, Seoul, South Korea - WBC. Referee: Harry Gibbs. Challenging for his old title, Orono (114) showed great speed and power to totally demolish Kim (114½), his former conqueror. Kim was floored four times in the fifth, being battered by solid combinations to head and body, before going down again in the sixth to be rescued by the referee after 38 seconds.

Following this, it was decided upon by the WBC that as from 1 January 1983 all world title bouts held under their auspices would be contested over 12 rounds.
