1991-09-14 [[Young-Kyun Park]] w pts 12 [[Eloy Rojas]], KBS Hall, Mokpo, Seoul, South Korea - WBA. Referee: Larry Rozadilla. Scorecards: 118-110, 116-111, 118-114. Starting well and looking to get his challenger out of the fight quickly, Park (125½) dropped Rojas (124½) with a heavy right hook, and when the latter got up he was put under immense pressure before making it to the bell. Using his greater strength to push Rojas back Park continued with his offensive, but after both men were cut in the sixth, Rojas over the right eye and Park over the left optic, the fight took a late turn with Rojas becoming the aggressor as Park tired. However, it was too little and too late as Park held on to thwart Rojas’ late rally.
