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 as the left jab found its mark unerringly. Dropped by a right hook in the second, Baek was then 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 carry on with a cut left eye once it had closed completely the referee stopped the fight with six seconds left of the sixth.
