1975-03-14 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, being counted with 23 seconds of the round remaining.
