Earlier today the KBF announced a Korean title double header to be held on March 6th.
One of the title bouts will be for the Korean Featherweight title as Sa-Myung Noh (6-2, 1) battles against Tae-Il Kim (6-2, 2)*. We believe this will be for the vacant title and it looks to be a very interesting match up between two up and comers who are fighting for their chance to be recognised. Of the two it's Noh that we know more about considering his loss to Ye-Joon Kim, in December 2013, and his win over Noriyoshi Taki late last year.
The other title bout will see Woo-Shin Kim (5-1-2, 2) battle against Sung-Tae Kim (5-10-1, 2) for the Korean Light Welterweight title. This time the man we recognise is Sung-Tae Kim who is a former Korean Super Featherweight champion and once fought for the OPBF Super Featherweight title. Sadly for Sung-Tae Kim he enters this bout following a trio of losses including a stoppage to Koji Kawamura and a technical decision to Dong-Hyuk Kim. As for Woo-Shin Kim his best performance appears to have been a 10 round draw with Japan's Ryo Okayama late last year. As with the Featherweight title bout, we suspect this will be for the vacant belt.
