1993-12-23 [[Yasuei Yakushiji]] w pts 12 [[Jung-Il Byun]], Aichi Prefectural Gym, Nagoya, Japan - WBC. Referee: Tony Perez. Scorecards: 115-113, 116-115, 113-115. In a very close contest which was difficult to score, Yakushiji (117½) captured the title from Byun (118) after impressing the judges that his aggressive tactics had overcome the accuracy of the southpaw champion’s blows. There were no knockdowns as the contest swayed first one way and then the other and following the result the South Korean Boxing Commission made an official protest to the WBC, who, although recognising the decision agreed that a return was warranted.
