1997-11-23 Gerry Penalosa w co 10 Young-Joo Cho, Indoor Gym, Songnam, South Korea - WBC. Referee: Luis Carlos Guzman. Penalosa (114¾) had to take a count in the first round, but got up to gash the challenger’s right eye and force the fight from there. Ultimately proving too strong for Cho (115), the Filipino lashed in a heavy right to the body that floored his rival in the tenth. It was a blow which proved to be the last of the contest, the referee counting the unfortunate Cho out on the 1.15 mark.
