Earlier today the Korean Boxing Federation (KBF), announced a double header to be held in the Deagu Metropolitan City thanks to KJ Promotions and Won Il Promotions.
The first part of the double header will see Masamichi Yabuki (7-3, 7) [佐藤政道] battle #1 ranked Korean contender Min Chul Bae (5-1-1, 4) [배민철], something that we had previously reported back in December. This is a really good match up and is being promoted as an OPBF ranking match, suggesting the winner will take a huge step towards an OPBF title fight.
The other part of the double header, the main event in fact, is a KBF Middleweight title bout between Sung Jae Jo (7-0, 6) [조성재] and Gyung Mo Yuh (3-5-3) [유경모], with Jo looking to make his first defense of the title.
The main event is scheduled for 10 rounds whilst the co-feature is set to be an 8 round bout.
