1992-08-29 Young-Kyun Park w pts 12 Giovanni Nieves, Hyundai Hotel, Kyongju, South Korea - WBA. Referee: Waldemar Schmidt. Scorecards: 116-113, 116-113, 115-113. In a hard-fought, close-quarter battle it was the challenger who took the initiative, winning the opening two rounds before Park (125½) started to score with non-stop combinations that gave him a mid-point lead. From thereon, however, it was difficult to score as both men wearied and held more, but the edge appeared to be with Park as he looked to knock Nieves (124¾) over. Continuing to work hard, Park took the last two sessions to give him the victory on all three cards. Although Park was cut over the right eye in the 12th it came too late to be an advantage to his opponent.
