1981-10-11 Hwan-Jin Kim w pts 15 Alfonso Lopez, Chungmu Gym, Daejon, South Korea - WBA. Referee: Waldemar Schmidt. Scorecards: 145-144, 145-142, 143-143. Making his first defence, despite lacking the power required to force a stoppage Kim (107½) carried the fight to Lopez (107¼), chasing his rival to land blows to head and body before having to settle for the majority decision. Although Lopez was groggy in both the 14th and 15th rounds after Kim had swarmed all over him he managed to hold out.
