1987-04-05 Seung-Hoon Lee w rsc 10 (15) Jorge Urbina Diaz, Palpal Gym, Seoul, South Korea - IBF. Referee: Ted Pick. Showing great speed, skill and restraint, Lee (121¾) was content to box carefully for six rounds until opening up in the seventh. Although Diaz (121½) came back in the eighth he was again under the cosh in the ninth, and in the tenth session Lee swarmed all over him, throwing lefts and rights before dropping him in a heap. Getting up, the challenger was a sitting target and blows to head and body soon had him over again, the referee halting the fight quickly to allow him medical assistance. Both men received cut eyes in the first round, Lee on the right and Diaz on the left.
