1993-07-03 Sung-Kil Moon w pts 12 Carlos Salazar, Education and Culture Centre, Seoul, South Korea - WBC. Referee: Toby Gibson. Scorecards: 114-115, 116-112, 116-111. Proving both clever and durable, Salazar (114½) showed more power at 115lbs than he had in the lower divisions, thus making life extremely difficult for the champion. Cutting Moon on the left eye in the second round, Salazar put him under considerable pressure and scored a knockdown in the final session with a strong left. In the sixth, Moon (115), bleeding badly, asked the referee to stop the fight to go to the judges, but when the third man ruled that the cut had been caused by a punch and not a butt the fight continued with the aggressive champion just about keeping ahead of the counter-punching Salazar.
