1976-11-24 Dong-Kyun Yum w pts 15 Royal Kobayashi, Changchung Gym, Seoul, South Korea - WBC. Referee: Yusaku Yoshida. Scorecards: 148-146, 148-144, 146-146. Starting fast, Yum (121¼) knocked Kobayashi (122) down with a straight left in the opening session, but although the champion was soon up and running for long periods he found that he was chasing shadows as the former legged it around the ring. Despite Yum putting distance between himself and Kobayashi he was also scoring with the left, and the confused champion who was unable to tag him consistently enough ultimately went down on the scorecards.
