1993-03-20 Young-Kyun Park w rsc 4 Thanomchit Kiatkriengkrai, Halla Gym, Seoul, South Korea - WBA. Referee: Ken Morita. Making his seventh successful defence, Park (125¼) pressed from the opening bell, but with Kiatkriengkrai (125¾) refusing to back off it was toe-to-toe for the first three rounds. In the fourth, Park got to the challenger with a solid southpaw left to the head which decidedly hurt him. Then, following a non-stop barrage of blows, mainly uppercuts, the referee stopped the contest with just 12 seconds of the round remaining in order to rescue the brave Thai from taking further punishment.
