1988-05-06 Rolando Bohol w pts 15 Cho-Woon Park, Araneta Coliseum, Manila, Philippines - IBF. Referee: Hideo Arai. Scorecards: 148-134, 149-133, 149-133. Despite smashing the challenging Park (111½) to the floor with a crunching left in the first, and cutting him up and having him in difficulty several times, Bohol (112), who was in control throughout, had to be content with a points victory.

As from 1 September it was decided by the IBF that all world title bouts held under their auspices would be contested over 12 rounds, thus seeing them fall in line with the other leading bodies. This would be the last 15-round bout for the weight class.
