1993-07-25 Myung-Woo Yuh w pts 12 Yuichi Hosono, Hyundi Hotel, Kongju, South Korea - WBA. Referee: Larry Rozadilla. Scorecards: 119-110, 118-110, 120-111. Despite setting a good pace and concentrating his attacks on the champion’s body, Hosono (107¾) was unable to make his work pay off as Yuh (108), cut over the right eye in the fifth, responded with combinations of his own to romp away with the points decision.

After Yuh relinquished his WBA version of the title when retiring in September, Leo Gamez and Shiro Yahiro were matched in order to find a successor.
