1977-05-21 Wilfredo Gomez w co 12 (15) Dong-Kyun Yum, Roberto Clemente Coliseum, San Juan, Puerto Rico - WBC. Referee: Dick Young. Despite flooring Gomez (120) with a left hook to the jaw in the opening session, Yuh (121) was unable to take advantage of the situation as the challenger boxed his way back into contention over the next few rounds to gradually assume control. By the 11th, Yuh was being battered from pillar to post, jabs, hooks and crosses not being returned, and in the 12th Gomez stretched him out for the count on the 2.40 mark following a clutch of heavy punches that rained in on him.
