2005-01-30 In-Jin Chi w pts 12 Tommy Browne, Grand Hilton Convention Hall, Seoul, South Korea - WBC. Referee: Jose Cobian. Scorecards: 120-107, 119-108, 117-112. Starting fast, firing in combinations to head and body, the champion soon had Browne (125¾) over with a right hand, only for it to be classified as a slip. Even when Browne began to utilize his superior reach in the fifth it was to no avail, and the sixth saw him pick up damage above the right eye as the former cut loose with flurries of punches. Although Chi (126) was on top throughout Browne continually showed his mettle as he fought back with solid combinations, the crowd giving him a big hand at the finish.

On 20 August, Humberto Soto outpointed Rocky Juarez over 12 rounds at the Allstate Arena, Rosemont, Illinois to win the vacant WBC ‘interim’ title.
