1986-12-07 Jum-Hwan Choi w pts 15 Cho-Woon Park, Kudok Gym, Pusan, South Korea - IBF. Referee: Sam Williams. Scorecards: 146-142, 145-143, 145-141. In a fight for the title vacated by Dodie Penalosa, Choi (106½) survived a fifth-round knockdown to overcome Park (108) to win the title on points. Choi, a squat, but busy infighter, came on strong in the latter rounds, his overarm right being especially difficult for Park to fathom out.
