2000-01-30 [[Jong-Kwon Baek]] drew 12 [[Kyu-Chul Choi]], Indoor Gym, Pohang, South Korea - WBA. Referee: Fernando Estrella. Scorecards: 117-112, 115-115, 114-116. In a tight battle throughout with no knockdowns recorded, the champion just about held on to his title with neither man able to put a winning run together. Although the taller Choi (129½) was the better technician of the pair, continuously trying to outbox Baek (130) from range, the latter stuck to his task aggressively as he looked to get his punches off. Despite winning 22 rounds on the three judges’ scorecards, the result certainly did not favour Choi.
