1990-07-24 Humberto Gonzalez w rsc 5 Jung-Keun Lim, Great Western Forum, Los Angeles, California, USA - WBC. Referee: Rudy Ortega. No respecter of reputations, Lim (107½) came out bombing, giving Gonzalez (107¼) quite a battle until he ran into three heavy lefts to the jaw and was floored in the last 20 seconds of the fourth round. It was clear in the fifth that the challenger had little left in the tank and after 34 seconds of the round had elapsed he was rescued by a compassionate referee.
