1978-10-15 Yoko Gushiken w co 5 (15) Sang-Il Chung, Kuramae Arena, Tokyo, Japan - WBA. Referee: Ken Morita. Dominating from start to finish, Gushiken (107½) cut up Chung’s right eye in the third, floored him for eight in the fourth and knocked him out after 22 seconds of the fifth, following a combination of heavy rights and lefts to the head. Although much taller than the champion, Chung (107½) found it to be of no real advantage.
