1991-03-30 [[Young-Kyun Park]] w pts 12 [[Antonio Esparragoza]], Mudeungsan Hotel, Kwangju, South Korea - WBA. Referee: Stan Christodoulou. Scorecards: 118-110, 116-112, 117-111. The aggressor throughout, Park (125¼) created something of a surprise when winning the title and ending the champion’s four-year reign. Esparragoza (126) could not get going, finding Park’s furious combinations difficult to handle, and although fighting back with long uppercuts and solid left hooks of his own was unable to stop the flow of punches coming his way. Certainly a surprise package, according to ''The Ring'' magazine Park reminded them of a miniature [[Gene Fullmer]] type of pressure fighter.
