1986-12-14 Jung-Koo Chang w rsc 5 (12) Hideyuki Ohashi, Sunin University Gym, Inchon, South Korea - WBC. Referee: Henry Elesperu. Watched by a record-breaking crowd of 20,000, the southpaw Chang (107¾) had too much firepower for Ohashi (107¾). Despite being held up by the inexperienced challenger, who occasionally used his peek-a-boo style to good effect, Chang wore his man down quickly. In the fifth round, Chang landed a cracking right to the temple to drop the man from Japan, who was now bleeding badly, and although he got up the referee quickly called a halt at the 1.55 mark to save a brave opponent from an unnecessary beating.
