1993-11-13 Jose Luis Bueno w pts 12 Sung-Kil Moon, The Gym, Pohang, South Korea - WBC. Referee: Rudy Ortega. Scorecards: 117-112, 114-115, 118-110. Despite Bueno (115) being dropped by a solid left hook in round three, the challenger picked himself up to counter Moon (115) effectively, his hand speed and excellent movement making life difficult for the latter. Needing to change tack, Moon, his left cheekbone badly swollen, rallied strongly from the ninth onwards but was unable to influence the judges enough to keep his title.
