2000-01-02 In-Joo Cho w pts 12 Gerry Penalosa, Sheraton Walker Hill Hotel, Seoul, South Korea - WBC. Referee: Marty Denkin. Scorecards: 115-112, 116-113, 114-115. Obviously a clash of styles, as in their first fight it was a dull affair with Cho (114) struggling to find a rhythm and the aggressive Penalosa (114¾), who apart from the odd occasion had difficulty landing his big southpaw rights. Although the champion’s punches lacked steam, there were enough of them to warrant the decision, especially after Penalosa had a point deducted in the tenth for his corner’s failure to keep water off the canvas following several warnings.
