14 March Alfonso Zamora w co 4 (15) Soo-Hwan Hong, Inglewood Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBA. Referee: George Latka. In becoming the youngest bantam champion in history, Zamora (118), at 20, made a fast start against the counter-punching Hoon (118) and although he was gradually getting on top it was still a surprise when he put the champion down in the fourth following a right-left blast. From the moment he hit the deck it was obvious that Hong was not going to make it and he was counted with 23 seconds of the round remaining.
