1987-02-22 Dodie Boy Penalosa w rsc 5 (15) Hi-Sup Shin, Indoor Gym, Inchon, South Korea - IBF. Referee: Abraham Pacheco. In a battle between tall and speedy, hard-hitting southpaws, it was Penalosa (111½) who was the first to strike, flooring Shin (110¾) with a solid left in the fifth. Getting up, the champion was a sitting target and was soon put down again and although it looked to be the end he bravely got up to face his tormenter before being rescued by the referee at 2.10 of the round.
