1995-05-27 Eloy Rojas w pts 12 Kyun-Yung Park, Shinyang Park Hotel, Seoul, South Korea - WBA. Referee: John Coyle. Scorecards: 118-109, 114-113, 113-114. Defending his title against the man he won it from, Rojas (125¾) staged a grandstand finish to make sure of victory in an action-packed encounter, coming on strongly to have Park (126) staggering over the last three rounds. Although one judge had Rojas winning ten rounds, which was nonsense, the other two had one point between them, and if the uncompromising Park (126) had not had a point deducted in the eighth round for repeated use of the head the result could have been rather different. There were no knockdowns, but the better quality came from Rojas while the southpaw Park occasionally caused problems with his wild boxing and trademark left hand.
