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, the contest petering out over the last four rounds as Cho was content to clinch and hold.
