1968-05-25 Sandro Mazzinghi w pts 15 Ki-Soo Kim, San Siro Stadium, Milan, Italy - WBA/WBC. Referee: Harold Valan. Scorecards: 71-67, 71-67, 68-73. The champion started in his normal roughhouse fashion and before the first round was over Mazzinghi (151½) was cut on the left eye by an unintentional butt, which bled throughout. Having slipped over in the first, Kim (151¾) was then dropped in the third following a barrage of blows to the head, but quickly recovered and was soon back to using his head as an effective weapon, intentional or otherwise. Wading into Mazzinghi in the 11th, Kim butted the Italian on the jaw and was again reprimanded, but it made little difference to a fighter who knew nothing better. Although Kim seemed to be on top from the seventh through to the 12th he then ran out of steam and Mazzinghi, fighting for all he was worth, came on strongly to take the decision.
