1990-06-09 [[Sung-Kil Moon]] w rtd 8 [[Gilberto Roman]], Palpal Gym, Seoul, South Korea - WBC. Referee: Richard Steele. Although the better boxer of the two, Roman (114½) was soon on the floor, being dumped by a sweeping hook in the first. Despite getting up and sparkling at times his poor conditioning ultimately let him down. Cut by the right eye from a butt in the third round, the former champion made Moon (115) look foolish at times, but by the end of the eighth he intimated to the referee that he did not wish to continue and that was that.
