1988-07-29 [[Lloyd Honeyghan]] w rsc 5 (12) [[Yung-Kil Chung]], Convention Hall, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA - WBC. Referee: Tony Orlando. The challenger started strongly, forcing Honeyghan (147) to stumble in the opening round, before the latter began to get a better grip of things in the fourth when turning southpaw to land punches with ease. Coming into the fifth ahead on all three cards, after banging in a few right jabs to the face Honeyghan went badly low with a clumsy left that sent Chung (146¾) writhing to the canvas in pain 42 seconds into the session. With Chung having been given five minutes to recover but unable to continue at the end of that period, the referee then awarded the decision to Honeyghan by way of a technical knockout.
