Lineal and WBC Super Flyweight World Champion Sung Kil Moon made the ninth defense of his title after beating Carlos Gabriel Salazar by 12 round split decision on July 3rd, 1993 at the Education Culture Center in Seoul, Korea. Two judges scored the bout for Moon, 116-111 and 116-112, with one judge favoring Salazar 115-114. This would be the final victory of Moons career, as he fought just once more. Salazar would go on to become a two-time World Champion, winning titles in both the Super Flyweight and Flyweight divisions.
