1992-12-19 Young-Kyun Park w pts 12 Ever Beleno, KBS Hall, Changwon, South Korea - WBA. Referee: Kazumasa Kuwata. Scorecards: 117-112, 117-112, 115-114. Displaying both aggression and durability, Park (125½) held on to his title against Beleno (124¾), an unbeaten southpaw, in what was often a tough and uncompromising close-quarter battle. Although taking control from the third round, Park lacked the accuracy to go with his heavier punches, and as he tired in the latter stages Beleno came through strongly during the eighth and ninth sessions before he too ran out of steam.
