Default Re: Young-Ho Oh 'The Korean Terror'


Young-Ho Oh didn't disappear after the {July 1978} loss to WBA Champion - Samuel Serrano.

September 2, 1978.......(W Dec 10) Filipino - Boy Oliver

Then, on December 17, 1978 -
He went back up to 135 lbs., and defended his OPBF Lightweight Championship a '6th-Defense',
by stopping (KO 6) 'once-beaten' - 'Filipino' Mar Simbajon 19-1-0 (7 KO's)

March 4, 1979 -
Young-Ho won with a 'crushing' (KO 3) over 'highly-regarded' Yidano Lee 15-1-2 (6 KO's).

That put him back in line for a chance at one of the 'vacant' Lightweight Championships,
with a record of 45-6-3 (28 KO's), and holding the OPBF Lightweight Championship, he was
ranked as the #4 WBC Lightweight.

Jim Watt won the 'vacant' WBC Lightweight Championship on April 17, 1979 - and Young-Ho
was in line for a possible WBC 1979 Championship bout.
