1990-05-12 Antonio Esparragoza w pts 12 Chan-Mok Park, Hilton Hotel, Seoul, South Korea - WBA. Referee: Rudy Battle. Scorecards: 116-111, 116-113, 115-114. With height and reach in his favour, the challenger, Park (125¾), worked off the back foot throughout. Because of his negative tactics Park was never in the contest with a chance of winning, even having a point deducted for butting in the ninth. At various stages, Esparragoza (125½), stalking and chasing, became extremely frustrated, but he did enough to win what was described by one reporter as the worst fight he had ever seen in the Orient.
