1991-12-22 Sung-Il Moon w rsc 6 Torsak Pongsupa, Indoor Gym, Inchon, South Korea - WBC. Referee: Jose Medina. Ultimately proving too strong for his southpaw challenger, but not without a few shocks along the way, Moon (115) dropped his man in the first round with a cracking right hand but then had to fight hard to subdue the heavy-hitting Thai over the next few sessions. It was only when switching his attacks to the body that Moon began to get to Pongsupa (114) with a vengeance and several heavy uppercuts eventually saw the latter take a mandatory count before being rescued by the referee at 1.48 of the sixth.
