1992-06-07 Humberto Gonzalez w rsc 12 Kwang-Sun Kim, Olympic Fencing Gym, Seoul, South Korea - WBC. Referee: Toby Gibson. To retain his title, Gonzalez (108) had to make one of the most dramatic comebacks in world title history after Kim (108) had attacked continuously and piled up points throughout the contest. Everything changed in the 11th after Gonzalez finally made a dent when connecting with a vicious left that decked the challenger. Although Kim was saved by the bell the champion swarmed all over him, and two knockdowns later the referee called matters off after 55 seconds of the 12th round had elapsed.
