1985-12-08 Myung-Woo Yuh w pts 15 Joey Olivo, Municipal Stadium, Seoul, South Korea - WBA. Referee: Isidro Rodriguez. Scorecards: 146-141, 143-145, 148-142. The aggressive Yuh (107¾) took the title with a split decision win over Olivo (107), who boxed on the retreat and attempted to counter. However, it was not enough for two of the judges, especially as the champion, by now cut over the right eye, lost the last five rounds clearly in the eyes of the majority.
