1997-02-01 Yong-Soo Choi w pts 12 Lakva Sim, The Gym, Songnam, South Korea - WBA. Referee: Tony Weeks. Scorecards: 115-113, 114-113, 113-115. Starting aggressively, the champion had a good opening round before Sim (129½) picked it up with jabs and right uppercuts in the second. Choi (129½) came back strongly in the next three sessions, working away well on the inside, only for the free-punching Sim to come on strong in the sixth and seventh. The next three rounds went to Choi, but again Sim came right back to take the 11th and 12th as he looked to secure the win.
