1990-10-20 Sung-Kil Moon w tdec 5 Kenji Matsumura, Hanyang University Gym, Seoul, South Korea - WBC. Referee: Jesus Torres. Scorecards: 50-42, 48-43, 49-43. After dropping Matsumura (115) twice in the first round it seemed it was going to be a formality for Moon (115), before he was badly cut in the third and again in the fifth. At the end of the fifth, the ringside doctor decided that the cuts were too bad for Moon to continue. Ahead on all three judges’ scorecards at the time of the stoppage, it was deemed that because Moon had sustained the cuts through clumsy headwork by the challenger and he should be returned the winner.
