We were informed earlier today that unbeaten Korean fighter Eun Hye Lee (6-0, 1) will be defending her WBO Asia Pacific female Flyweight title on March 8th as she faces off against former world title challenger Eun-Young Huh (6-2-1), who will be fighting in Korea for the first time in almost 5 years.
Lee won the title last year late last year when she clearly out pointed Filipino foe Lady Love Sampiton. That was Lee's second win of the year and saw her claiming her second title after having won the South Korean female Light Flyweight title in October 2012. Despite her unbeaten record she hasn't proven her self and her opposition so far has been limited, in fact their combined records, according to boxrec.com, has been 4-11-2, with 2 of those wins, 9 of those losses and 2 of those draws being held by Amy Berezowski who Lee has beaten twice.
Huh is slightly more well known by international boxing fans. She is a former Korean female Minimumweight champion, a former IFBA world champion and a former WBC interim Minimumweight champion. Unfortunately for her however she is best known for her losses. The first of those came in 2010, when she was out pointed by Teeraporn Pannimit in a bout for the WBO female Minimumweight title in Thailand, and then her stoppage loss to Momo Koseki in Hong Kong in 2013, in a bout for Koseki's WBA Atomweight title.
This bout is expected to be one of two title fights on the show with the other seeing Ik Soo Han (7-3, 2) defending his Korean Super Featherweight for the first time. Han, who won the title last October with a 4th round KO against Jong Won Won will be facing Jae Ho Kim (5-1, 1), who came up short in a Korean Light Welterweight title bout last year against the then debuting Myung Soo Sun.
