1977-11-19 Sam Serrano w rsc 10 (15) Tae-Ho Kim, Roberto Clemente Coliseum, San Juan, Puerto Rico - WBA. Referee: Larry Rozadilla. After making a slow start the challenger surprised Serrano (130) in the third when a lightning-fast right hand dropped him for the mandatory ‘eight’ count. Following that, Serrano began to assert himself during the next couple of sessions before Kim (130) came back strongly to capture the sixth and seventh rounds as he landed several solid left-right combinations. Although Serrano did well in the next six minutes nobody would have expected the fight to be over at 1.50 of the tenth, with Kim unable to continue after getting up in a dazed state at the count of ‘eight’ and being rescued by the referee. The punch that did the damage was a short right uppercut which smashed into Kim’s face, leaving him with a gashed right eye and on his knees.
