1985-06-30 Chong-Pal Park w pts 15 Vinnie Curto, Munhwa Gym, Seoul, South Korea - IBF. Referee: Yasujiro Fujimoto. Scorecards: 146-139, 144-142, 146-141. Although the decision was unanimous, the clever challenger made life extremely difficult for Park (168), who used fast footwork and landed the more effective punches after both men had made a cautious start. There was no doubting the quality of Curto (168), especially with his ability to evade punches and respond, and it came as no surprise when he was given chance of revenge in a return match the following year.
