1987-05-03 Chong-Pal Park w pts 15 Lindell Holmes, Sunin Gym, Inchon, South Korea - IBF. Referee: Abraham Pacheco. Scorecards: 143-142, 144-143, 139-145. Getting a second chance to win the title after their previous encounter ended in a second round technical draw, Holmes (165¼) started strongly to have the champion down in the fifth from a right to the head. However, from there on in, Park (168) increased his work rate and came on strongly in what had been a gruelling battle to take the last three sessions as Holmes ran out of steam.
