1998-02-27 Chatchai Sasakul w pts 12 Young-Jin Kim, Koh Samui Amphitheatre, Bangkok, Thailand - WBC. Referee: Jose Medina. Scorecards: 117-111, 119-111, 119-111. Carrying a sprained right wrist into the fight, Sasakul (111½), who got off to a flying start, soon realised he had problems and showed great character in fighting a one-handed campaign to retain his title. There was no doubting the effort of Kim (111½), but he was clumsy by comparison and unable to take advantage of the opportunity.
