1979-07-28 Sung-Jun Kim w pts 15 Siony Carupo, Changchung Gym, Seoul, South Korea - WBC. Referee: Takeshi Shimakawa. Scorecards: 149-145, 148-146, 148-144. Bleeding from a cut over the right eye from the third round onwards, the taller Kim (108) had difficulty getting to grips with Carupo (108), whose main aim was to move in close and target the body. The champion eventually found a way through, making good use of the uppercut, but it was probably the warnings that the Filipino received for illegal headwork that swayed the judges against him.
