1983-12-24 Soon-Chun Kwon w co 5 (15) Rene Busayong, Jamsil Gym, Seoul, South Korea - IBF. Somewhat surprisingly, Busayong (111¾) had only taken part in 12 (losing four of the first six) contests prior to meeting Kwon (112), who became the IBF’s first champion at the weight. Kwon, the aggressor all the way, impressed with his work to the body, knocking Busayong down three times in all before the referee counted him out at 2.48 of round five.
