1979-08-25 [[Antonio Cervantes]] w pts 15 [[Kwang-Min Kim]], Changchung Gym, Seoul, South Korea - WBA. Referee: Stan Christodoulou. Scorecards: 149-140, 149-138, 146-147. Unleashed after 15 unbeaten fights when matched against the champion, Kim (139½) was very aggressive from the start before he began running into a roadblock that came in the shape of a solid left hand to the head. Still Kim continued to bore in tossing overarm blows, but with his extra reach Cervantes (139¼) cleverly outboxed the youngster to put points in the bank. After knocking Kim over with a cracking left hook to the jaw in the 11th, Cervantes began to feel the pace and in the 15th he was knocked down by a wild right before making it to his feet and the final bell where victory awaited him.
