1988-11-27 Sung-Kil Moon w co 7 Edgar Monserrat, Chamshill Students Gym, Seoul, South Korea - WBA. Referee: Larry Rozadilla. Starting fast, Moon (117¼) soon had the challenger over, vicious lefts and rights doing the trick, and he repeated the dose in the third round. From then on, Moon was merely biding his time and in the seventh the southpaw Monserrat (116¾) was floored again, only this time he was counted out at 0.44 in the act of rising.

Following the WBA convention, held in Venezuela during October, in which 26 of the 71 delegates walked out in disgust and went on to form the World Boxing Organisation (WBO), Israel Contreras and Maurizio Lupino were nominated to contest the new organisation’s vacant title.
