1991-03-16 [[Sung-Kil Moon]] w rsc 4 [[Nana Konadu]], Prince Felipe Pavilion, Zaragoza, Spain - WBC. Referee: Joe Cortez. Looking to take the title, Konadu (114¾) dominated the opening round as telling left jabs found their mark, and seemed to be well on his way with Moon (115) continually hitting fresh air. There was a complete turnaround in the second session as Moon unleashed a windmill of body blows and wild uppercuts, which had Konadu on the floor momentarily and generally under pressure before the bell gave him some respite. Having taken another battering in the third and unable to stem the tide it came as no surprise when Konadu, swaying from non-stop punishment after being blasted by two heavy uppercuts, was rescued by the referee with just five seconds remaining in the fourth.
