1999-01-10 In-Joo Cho w pts 12 Joel Luna Zarate, Ritz Carlton Hotel, Seoul, South Korea - WBC. Referee: Tony Perez. Scorecards: 116-112, 115-114, 114-114. Defending his title for the first time, Cho (115) disappointed yet again with another negative display, his hit-and-run tactics good enough to just about beat Zarate (114½) but not for the fans who expected more from him. Although the Mexican tried to make a fight of it he was not able to draw the champion into one and the contest petered out over the last four rounds as Cho was content to clinch and hold.
