1990-03-30 [[Christophe Tiozzo]] w rsc 6 [[In-Chul Baek]], Gerland Sports Palace, Lyon, France - WBA. Referee: Carlos Berrocal. Giving the best performance of his career, Tiozzo (166½) was too good for the champion, who was outscored right from the start, the left jab finding its mark unerringly, before being dropped by a right hook in the second and being given a standing count in the third after being caught again. Although the tough Baek (168) tried to fight back in the fourth and fifth he was still shipping too much punishment and having been allowed to fight on with a cut left eye once it had closed completely the referee stopped the fight with six seconds left of the sixth.
