On paper it's a big step up for Kim though the reality is that he's continuing to develop whilst treading water with Angkota posing little threat now a days.
Aged 34 the Indonesian challenger is a fighter who was once considered as one of the best Indonesian fighters out there and he does hold some notable wins, including the only defeat of Donnie Nietes, a win over Sonny Boy Jaro. Sadly however in recent years he has struggled. He has lost his last 4, including a stoppage loss to Genesis Servania, and won just once in his 8 bouts, in bouts dating back more than 4 years.
For Kim, who is unbeaten since a decision loss to Sa Myung Noh in his second pro bout more than 3 years ago, this is a chance to score a 9th successive win and continue to develop as the KBC's face of professional boxing.
The bout is set to be aired on Korean channel MBC Sports and will be the main event of an other less than stellar card with the end being held in Jeju.
*The KBC list Angkotta's record as 32-11-1 (18), Kim is known to have had a bout that isn't included on the boxrec.com database.
