1986-05-18 Ki-Young Chung w pts 15 Richard Savage, Citizens’ Stadium, Taegu, South Korea - IBF. Referee: Al Rothenberg. Scorecards: 144-142, 148-142, 147-138. For four rounds Savage (125½) stayed away from the hard-punching champion, scoring at range, before both men came together in the fifth with solid blows getting home. Over the next couple of sessions Savage did reasonably well, but after that it was all Chung (126), who dominated with left hooks and right crosses right though to the final bell without ever being able to floor his game opponent however much he tried.
