1990-09-29 Khaosai Galaxy w co 6 Yong-Kang Kim, Provincial Stadium, Suphan Buri, Thailand - WBA. Referee: John Coyle. Proving no match for the strong, hard-punching southpaw champion and failing to make good use of his speed, Kim (113) was down in the second but surprisingly managed to make it into the sixth round before being taken out. Having softened the lanky South Korean up Galaxy (114½) really went to work in the sixth, which was ended when a vicious overarm left to the temple smashed Kim to the canvas to be counted out on the 58-second mark.
