1998-08-29 [[In-Joo Cho]] w pts 12 [[Gerry Penalosa]], Ritz Carlton Hotel, Seoul, South Korea - WBC. Referee: Nobuaki Uratani. Scorecards: 116-113, 117-115, 112-116. In what was a difficult fight to score, apart from in the seventh when the southpaw Penalosa (115) was nearly downed by a left hook, the latter lost his title. Unfortunately, with both men being counter-punchers it was a negative affair and even when Penalosa went forward from round nine onwards, the good defensive skills of Cho (115) made him miss with far too many punches.
