Re: Young-Ho Oh 'The Korean Terror'
Strange bout for Young-Ho Oh
April 22, 1979
With a chance at the WBC Lightweight Championship, Young-Ho takes on
compatriot and Korean Lightweight Champion, 'undefeated' Kwang-Min Kim
who was 13-0-1 (4 KO's).
Kwang-Min scores a 'close' 10-Round Decision in an over-the-weight bout at
137 lbs. versus Young-Ho.
Young-Ho then drops from #4 to #10 by the WBC in the Lightweight Divison.
Kwang-Min, suprisingly gets a shot at the WBA Light-Welterweight Champion
Antonio 'Kid Pambele' Cervantes in August 1979. Kwang-Min takes the Champion
15-Rounds, while losing a 'Split' 15-Round Decision.
Young-Ho is promised both a WBC and WBA Lightweight Championship bout, but
waits and goes inactive for 10-Months, and doesn't fight again until February 1980.
