1977-12-18 Eddie Gazo w pts 15 Jae-Keum Lim, Sunin Gym, Inchon, South Korea - WBA. Referee: Marty Denkin. Scorecards: 147-146, 147-144, 148-150. Defending his title for the third time, Gazo (153¾), using his favoured hit-and-run tactics, just about got home against Lim (152½) on a split decision. There were no knockdowns in what was a dreary affair and although Lim got through with some good punches he was more often than not tied up when getting set. That Lim got a crack at the title at all was surprising as he had been knocked out in the seventh round of his previous contest by Jae-Doo Yuh.
