1985-11-29 Ki-Young Chung w rsc 15 (15) Min-Keun Oh, The Gym, Chonju, South Korea - IBF. Referee: Abraham Pacheco. Reported to be the Korean ‘Fight of the Year’, both men slugged it out as first one got on top and then the other in a war of attrition that went to the 15th round, with Chung (125½) ultimately prevailing. In the 12th the challenger was dropped by a solid left hook, but he fought back impressively to twice floor Oh (125½) before the referee had seen enough when calling a halt with just 45 seconds of the final session remaining.
