2000-08-27 [[Masamori Tokuyama]] w pts 12 [[In-Joo Cho]], Prefectural Gym, Osaka, Japan - WBC. Referee: Lupe Garcia. Scorecards: 119-107, 117-109, 116-110. Having cut Cho (115) over the left eye in the second and then dropped him with a left-right combination in the fourth, Tokuyuma (114¾) became the first North Korean to win a world title after boxing his way to a clear points win over his South Korean rival. Although Cho came back well at times it was never enough and the new champion was just too fast and too elusive.
