1991-02-02 [[Hi-Yong Choi]] w pts 12 [[Bong-Jun Kim]], Sajik Gym, Pusan, South Korea - WBA. Referee: Steve Smoger. Scorecards: 116-113, 116-113, 115-113. A seesaw affair that saw both men on the floor - Kim (105) in the second round and Choi (104½) twice in the fifth - also produced a change of champions as the latter’s better work paid dividends. There was no doubt that Choi, normally a counter puncher, surprised the champion with his aggression and it was this coupled to his cleaner punches that influenced the judges.
