1978-02-01 [[Soo-Hwan Hong]] w pts 15 [[Yu Kasahara]], Kuramae Arena, Tokyo, Japan - WBA. Referee: Marty Denkin. Scorecards: 145-139, 145-139, 145-141. Although he was dropped five times in all, in the second, the fourth, the ninth and twice in the tenth, Kasahara (121½) came right back and in the last third of the contest made up much ground as Hong (121¾) tired. Despite the knockdowns and regardless of the fact that he continually looked destined to lose inside the distance against the two-fisted Hong, the challenger proved himself a stylish boxer at long range and game to the core.
