1984-06-10 Min-Keun Oh w pts 15 Kelvin Lampkin, Munhwa Gym, Seoul, South Korea - IBF. Scorecards: 150-138, 149-140, 148-143. Stalking Lampkin (125¼) throughout, Oh (126) was held at bay by left leads during the first five rounds, but once he had got inside and was landing to head and body it looked likely that the former would not go the distance, especially when he was dropped heavily by a terrific left hook to the body in the ninth. Survive it he did, and the last five sessions saw the American hanging on grimly as Oh unsuccessfully tried to finish him off, much to the chagrin of the home crowd.
