On January 19th we'll see a notable card from South Korea as we get Annihilation 1, a joint boxing and MMA card in conjunction with the Korean Boxing Federation (KBF), Top Fighting Championship (TFC) and The Apex Predators (TAP).
The video, which is just a short one, is to hype up the card which will be headlined by Jung Kyoung Lee (6-2-1, 2) [이중경] battling Samuel Colomban (25-10-1, 11) for the OPBF Light Middleweight title, the first OPBF title fight to be held in Korea in years.
The video show cases some of the fighters on the show and also seems to confirm that it will be aired on KBS in Korea
Yesterday a join press conference was held in Korea with the Korean Boxing Federation (KBF), Top Fighting Championship (TFC) and The Apex Predators (TAP) Management all being there together to announce the first event of "Annihilation", which will take place on January 19th in Seoul.
The main event of that January card will see Jung Kyoung Lee (6-2-1, 2) [이중경] battling Samuel Colomban (25-10-1, 11) for the OPBF Light Middleweight title.
The joint venture is the first time boxing and MMA management companies will work together in Korea and the hope seems to be that by working together all the promoters win, due to pooled resources. The organisation appear set to follow ONE Championships lead in using a modified boxing ring to hold both MMA and boxing in the same venue, rather than having the need to have different shows for different sports.
