To some fight fans there is a feeling that "if it's not on boxrec.com it didn't happen". Sadly however boxrec.com have taken a political in regards to some shows that take part in South Korea and are run by the Korean Boxing Federation, the KBF. One of those shows took place yesterday, January 28th, and featured a staggering 17 bouts as the fighter took part in the second day of preliminary bouts for a National tournament.
Sadly we've not managed to come up with the names or results of the fighters involved though we do know that the show took place at IYF Gwangju Culture Center. Hopefully results form all the bouts will surface and we'll be able to give the winners their just dues however we suspect when the tournament ends the fighters still won't be part of the boxrec.com database and we'll be none the wiser as to who won which bouts.
It's a shame these men are fighting and not being given any credit for it, though hopefully we'll manage to get some details on the men in the finals later in the year.
