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

How did this happen ?

Young-Ho Oh, after losing a 10-Round Decision to Kwang-Min Kim on
April 22, 1979 -

Goes inactive for 10-Months.

Then, on February 22, 1980 - Young-Ho defends his OPBF Lightweight Championship
for a '7th-Time, by scoring a (KO 1) in '50-seconds' over Yidano Lee 15-2-2 (6 KO's).

Note: Young-Ho had also scored a (KO 3) over Yidano Lee back in March 1979, which
was Yidano Lee's last bout, and Young-Ho's last win.

The win improves Young-Ho to 46-7-3 (29 KO's), and suprisingly moves him back into
the #8 WBA Lightweight position.

Young-Ho then does not fight for another 5-months, when 'Bingo', on August 2, 1980
he finds himself in Detroit at the Joe Louis Arena as an 'approved' Challenger for WBA
Lightweight Champion - Hilmer Kenty.

Recap, Young-Ho Oh has had exactly 'one-fight' in 15 1/2 months, which lasted all of
50-seconds, and the WBA approves him as a Lightweight Challenger.

WBA Politics.
