2002-07-06 Jorge Arce w rsc 6 Yo-Sam Choi, Olympic Stadium, Seoul, South Korea - WBC. Referee: Larry O’Connell. Having waited two years for his title opportunity, Arce (107½) was not going to pass it up lightly, dropping Choi (108) in the opening round and pounding him persistently with hooks to the body to wear him down. Come the sixth session, a powerful left followed by a right-left combination saw Choi in serious trouble and rescued by the referee on the 1.21 mark.
