1979-03-18 Chan-He Park w pts 15 Miguel Canto, Kudok Stadium, Pusan, South Korea - WBC. Referee: Rudy Ortega. Scorecards: 148-146, 147-146, 150-140. Despite Canto (111) finishing strongly, Park (112) took the title, having used his longer reach to score with lefts and rights. Park tired towards the end, but the champion, in his 15th defence, lacked the power to put him on the floor. There were no knockdowns recorded.
