1989-09-15 Marlon Starling w pts 12 Yung-Kil Chung, Civic Centre, Hartford, Connecticut, USA - WBC. Referee: Arthur Mercante. Scorecards: 119-109, 119-110, 117-112. Despite dictating the fight virtually from start to finish, Starling (146) was unable to put his challenger on the floor and had to be satisfied with an easy points win. Chung (147), who proved to be tough and resilient, never gave up trying and was always in front of Starling, but he lacked the know-how to get to his man effectively and many of his best punches were taken on the arms and shoulders. In the latter stages, having realised that he was not going to knock Chung out and beginning to tire, Starling contented himself with putting more points in the bag and coasting home.
