1990-01-20 Sung-Il Moon w tdec 9 Nana Yaw Konadu, Exhibition Centre, Seoul, South Korea - WBC. Referee: Tony Perez. Scorecards: 87-84, 86-81, 86-84. Having been decked twice in the opener, Konadu (114½) stormed back to drop Moon (115) before the round ended. This was followed by both men standing toe-to-toe. In the third the champion was put down again, although a clash of heads left Moon, who was floored again in the next session, badly cut over the left eye. From thereon, it was a grim struggle all the way. With claret flowing, at the end of the ninth the referee decided that Moon’s injuries were too bad for him to continue and went to the scorecards to decide the winner.
