2002-02-23 Yo-Sam Choi w rsc 10 Shingo Yamaguchi, Tokyo Bay NK Hall, Chiba, Japan - WBC. Referee: Bruce McTavish. Responding to the challenger’s lack of punch power, Choi (108) cut him over the eyes in the sixth round, floored him with a vicious overhand right in the ninth and took him apart in the tenth before the referee decided that he had seen enough at 2.18 of the session. It was not that the busy Yamaguchi (106) failed to perform, but his skill alone was never going to be enough to keep the champion at bay for the whole 12 rounds.
