1985-12-13 Jiro Watanabe w co 5 (12) Yun-Sok Hwan, Municipal Stadium, Taegu, South Korea - WBC. Referee: Tony Perez. Downed once in the first round and twice in the second, Hwan (114¾) came back strongly, throwing left-hand bombs at his fellow southpaw and champion, Watanabe (114¾), who coolly stalked his man waiting for further opportunities. He did not have to wait long, putting Hwan down twice more in the fifth before a heavy right hook led to the latter being counted out at 2.34 of the session.
