1993-03-28 Jung-Il Byun w pts 12 Victor Rabanales, Hyundai Hotel, Kyongju, South Korea - WBC. Referee: Lou Filippo. Scorecards: 117-112, 115-113, 117-111. Despite having just eight fights on his record, Byun (117¾), a southpaw, boxed impressively to take the first six rounds when countering the lunging Rabanales (116¾) with accurate punches. Byun then took a breather for two or three rounds as the champion came on strong, before coming back to take over control, scoring with big straight lefts as he marched on to victory.
