1989-03-05 [[Yong-Kang Kim]] w pts 12 [[Yukito Tamakuma]], Prefectural Gym, Aomori, Japan - WBC. Referee: Richard Steele. Scorecards: 115-113, 115-113, 115-113. Defending his title, Kim (111¾) scored well with hard straight rights to head and body as he looked for an early win. In the fifth, however, Tamakuma (111¼) began to press with powerful left and right uppercuts, which forced Kim back to the ropes. The man from Japan then took command of the contest in three of the next four sessions until Kim came back with a series of combination punches that forced his man around the ring in the final six minutes to just about warrant the decision.
