1986-12-03 Elly Pical w co 10 (15) Dong-Chun Lee, Istora Senayan Arena, Jakarta, Indonesia - IBF. Referee: Abraham Pacheco. A gruelling pace for the first eight rounds saw Lee (114½) working well inside, while the champion looked to land heavy lefts to the jaw. However, in the ninth, Pical (114) got on top and in the next session he downed his rival with a batch of blows to head and body, leaving the referee to reach the count of ten with 30 seconds of the round remaining.

Pical forfeited IBF recognition in March 1987 after he challenged for the WBA junior bantamweight title.
