1986-04-11 Chong-Pal Park w co 15 (15) Vinnie Curto, Sports Arena, Los Angeles, California, USA - IBF. Referee: Henry Elesperu. After boxing well in the opening couple of rounds, Curto (166¾), moving well and making the champion miss, was dropped by a right to the head in the third and never really showed again despite getting up. From thereon, Park (168) controlled the fight and in the eighth and again in the tenth he battered Curto unmercifully with both hands. With both men tiring in the latter stages it was Park who had more left in the tank and after hurting Curto with a big right in the 15th, another right to the head dropped the American for the full count, the finish being timed at 2.15.
