On August 30th a Korean show passed us by with out us knowing about it. Sadly by the time we had learned of the show it was 2 weeks later and the show was effectively marking the first official card of the Korean Boxing Federation, making a change form the old Korean Boxing Commission.
Although the show slipped us by we did manage to stumble on the poster for the card "after the fact" and have decided to include it.
In total there was 12 bouts on the card with the two headline bouts bout being notable contests. The main event saw the promising Ye Joon Kim defending his WBC Youth Tittle against Thai challenger Susu Sithjadaeng whilst in the co-feature saw former WBO female Minimumweight champion Su Yun Hong battle against Dan Bi Kim. The remaining 10 bouts were all between relative no-names all of whom are pictured at the bottom of the poster.
Although the poster isn't great it does feature 23 of the 24 fighters involved on the show and also makes it clear that this is a KBF show as well as the date, television information and the number of fights on the card. Sadly however it is a bit basic. Hopefully however the poster will act as a start of a new era in Korean boxing which has fallen apart in recent years as the KBC effectively rung the death knell on Korean boxing.

Every major fight needs good promotional posters. This part of AsianBoxing will try and feature some of those posters.
