1992-06-15 Hiroki Ioka w pts 12 Bong-Jun Kim, Prefectural Gym, Osaka, Japan - WBA. Referee: Waldemar Schmidt. Scorecards: 116-112, 116-114, 117-112. Over 12 fast rounds, Ioka (107½) counter punched with precision, while Kim (107¾) had fair success with his combinations. Although the challenger occasionally stunned Ioka he was never able to build on any success as the latter kept control with the use of hooks and jabs, and at the final bell there was only one winner.
