1990-01-14 Myung-Woo Yuh w rsc 7 Hisashi Tokushima, Sunin University Gym, Seoul, South Korea - WBA. Referee: Rudy Battle. With about 20,000 fans in attendance, Yuh (108) dropped the fragile Tokushima (108) six times before the referee came to the challenger’s rescue at 1.30 of the seventh round. Putting his man down once in the fourth, three times in the fifth (the referee ignoring the three knockdowns in a round rule) and twice more in the sixth, Yuh went all out for the finish in the seventh and was hitting Tokushima all over the place before the referee decided that he had seen enough.
