Over the last few months Boxing M have been putting on shows as part of a Welterweight tournament, with the winner of the tournament set to collect a sizable purse.
Earlier this month we had the semi finals of the tournament,which saw Ma Roo Jung (6-4-1, 2) [정마루] score a quick win over Doo Hyup Kim (8-5-1, 5) [김두협] and Ji Soo Jung (3-0, 1) [정지수] claim a very competitive decision win over Kwang Min Choi (2-1, 1) [최광민]. As a result of those bouts we'll now see Ma Roo Jung take on Ji Soo Jung in the final, which will take place on March 1st and be scheduled for 8 rounds.
For fans interested in watching the contest it will be aired on SBS Sports in Korea and will take place at the Hilton Hotel, in the South Korean capital of Seoul.
Interestingly the bout will be a rematch of a contest the two men had back in December. In their first bout Ji Soo Jung took a took a narrow decision over Ma Roo Jung, though since then Ma Roo has fought twice, earning in place in the final as a result, whilst Ji Soo has fought just once, his win over Choi.
In the Chief support bout we'll see Middleweight acion as Joon Yong Lee (5-4-4, 3) [이준용] takes on Gyu Won Lee (4-1-1, 2) [이규원], with Joon Yong Lee looking to build on his 2016 draw with Koki Tyson, in a bout that we felt Lee deserved to take a win from.
