1991-12-17 Hiroki Ioka w pts 12 Myung-Woo Yuh, Prefectural Gym, Osaka, Japan - WBA. Referee: Enzo Montero. Scorecards: 115-113, 117-112, 113-115. Fighting for the first time outside of South Korea and having struggled to make the weight, Yuh (108) appeared sluggish and unable to get past the 68” reach of Ioka (108), as the former mini flyweight champion piled up the points. Although he woke up in round five, the champion was unable to keep any momentum going and, apart from some good late rallies, Ioka nearly finished him off in the 11th session with a good right-hand offensive.
