1983-03-16 [[Leonardo Cruz]] w pts 15 [[Soon-Hyun Chung]], Roberto Clemente Coliseum, San Juan, Puerto Rico - WBA. Referee: Larry Rozadilla. Scorecards: 148-137, 147-141, 146-140. Having an easier than expected time of it, Cruz (122) successfully defended his title against the tough Chung (122), who was reckoned to give him all the trouble he could handle. It did not work out that way, with really nothing much going on up until the eighth round when Cruz decided to take command, flooring Chung with a left-right to the jaw. Although the South Korean got up and weathered the subsequent storm, from then on Cruz was content to box his way to victory when relying on his skill rather than power.
