1992-10-31 [[Sung-Kil Moon]] w pts 12 [[Greg Richardson]], Olympic Fencing Stadium, Seoul, South Korea - WBC. Referee: Lupe Garcia. Scorecards: 119-108, 116-110, 114-114. Winning by a majority decision, it took Moon (115) more than 11 rounds to catch up with his challenger, knocking Richardson (114¾) down twice in the final session after softening him up with body punches. The American had boxed well over the first five rounds, moving in-and-out with the left jab, but was slowed appreciably once the body blows got to him. Even then, Richardson still made life difficult for Moon when living up to his nickname of ‘The Flea’.
