Kim, arguably the most promising fighter currently plying his career in Korea, used his more rounded skills and speed to outbox and out punch the Thai, who refused to give in but simply couldn't match the Korean youngster who showed signs of really maturing, at last.
The Korean 23 year old, who hasn't lost since being beaten in his second professional bout by Sa Myung Noh more than 4 years ago, did more than enough to impress the judges who scored him a winner with wide scores of 99-91, twice, and 98-93.
On the same card Sa Myung Noh (10-2, 3) [노사명] over-came a poor start to stop Min Suk Choi (3-3-1, 2) [최민석] and retain the KBF Featherweight title. Noh was dropped in the opening round before fighting back to score a 7th round TKO.
Also on this card fans saw Russian born Korean Je Ni Ma (8-1-3, 7) [마제니] score a dominant 3rd round win over Indonesian veteran Michael Speed Sigarlaki (16-19-2, 14). Sigarlaki was down numerous times before eventually being stopped in one of the most one sided bouts in recent memory.
