The bout was Doliguez's first since signing with Zanfer Promotions and was possibly a bit too tough considering it was his first fight outside of his native Philippines. We'd imagine that he will be back in action before the end of the year as Zanfer do tend to put on a lot of shows, hopefully when they do next have Doliguez out next he'll take a victory.
In South Korea we had a card that some how managed to go under the radar. The 10 bout show at the Yesan Highschool appears to have been quite a solid one and featured one or two recognisable names.
The card had 6 bouts scheduled for 4 rounds, of those 2 failed to reach the final bell. The shortest bout saw Jae-Won Jang (2-0, 1) stopping Dae-In Hyun (1-2) mid way through the second round. It only took 15 seconds of round 3 for Sa-Ya Lee (2-2, 1) to follow suit stopping the debuting Hyun-Woo Yang (0-1).
In decision victories over the short distance we saw the unbeaten Se-Joon Song (2-0) overcome Jae-Hyuk Lim (1-2) by the narrowest of margins and Joo-Young Lee (1-0) defeat Sun-Ok Choi (0-1) in a battle of debutants.
Bizarely the card featured 3 draws in total with 2 of those coming over the 4 round distance. These draws saw Eun-Sung Jang (2-0-1) being held by Tae-Young Go (0-1-3), Moon-Sun Jung (1-1-2) holding Kwang-Hoon Jo (0-0-1) and Jin-Wook Lim (5-3-4, 1) settling for a draw with Ye-Joon Kim (4-1-2, 1) in one of the shows 6 round contests.
The other 6 rounder on the show saw the experienced Young-Kyoon Lee (1-12-1) lose a split decision to Jae-Hoon Lee (4-3-1, 2).
In the first of the shows 2 titles fights Taek-Min Kim (15-6, 10) claimed the South Korean Light Welterweight title by stopping Jin-Soo Kim (6-3, 3). This loss was the first time Jin-Soo Kim had been stopped and was incidentally the first win for Taek-Min Kim in 4 bouts after suffering a trio of losses.
The main event featured, arguably the most famous current Korean boxer as Ji-Hoon Kim (25-9, 19) claimed the WBO Asia Pacific Welterweight title. "Valcano", as Ji-Hoon Kim is often dubbed, scored his first win in 3 bouts and first for the first in his native Korea in over 2 years. Kim easily stoped the over-matched Indonesian Roy Tua Manihuruk (14-8-2, 11) to get back to winning ways though we're unsure if Kim is actually going to make a run at the Welterweight divison.
