1989-03-19 Yul-Woo Lee w rsc 9 German Torres, Chungmu Gym, Taejon, South Korea - WBC. Referee: Marty Denkin. In a slugging match with little to choose between the men in the first six rounds, Torres (107½) won the seventh with hooks and uppercuts to head and body before Lee (107¾) took charge in the eighth as the challenger became fatigued. At this stage it was all one way as Lee battered Torres, who was badly swollen around the face, around the ring until the referee had seen enough and called a halt at 2.14 of the ninth. Torres had been penalised a point for rabbit punching in the fifth.
