In Korea this coming Sunday fans will get a show with 4 different titles bouts on it, in what should be a pretty interesting card, even if the fighters are the most established, talented or proven.
The main event from the card will see Eun Hye Lee (10-1, 4) take on Japan's Chie Higano (7-6, 2) in a bout for the WIBA Flyweight title, with Lee looking to make her second defense of the title. The Korean 34 year old was really unlucky in her sole defeat, a razor thin majority loss to Nana Yoshikawa in Japan in 2016, and since then she has scored two wins. The visitor, who's last bout was fought at Atomweight, will be moving up in weight significantly for this bout, her first outside of Japan, and will clearly be the under-dog. Interestingly Higano has previously fought for a major world title, though was stopped in 4 rounds by Momo Koseki in a bout for he WBA Atomweight title.
The main supporting bout will be a Korean Heavyweight title bout, and will pit In Sung Oh (2-0-1) against Kyung Hak Lee (3-4-1, 1) for the vacant title. Aged 20 Oh is the younger man, but he only has 14 career rounds and at 5'11” he is a very small Heavyweight. Lee on the other hand is 36 and 25 rounds under his belt, though hasn't fought since August 2014 and hasn't scored a win in almost 7 years!
A Korean Featherweight title bout will see the hard hitting Jae Woo Lee (5-2, 4) take on Hyun Je Shin (8-6, 2). Lee made his debut in 2012 but took a break of more than 4 years away from the ring, before returning last year and taking his first decision win. Aged 23 Shin is the more experienced man, and is a former Korean Featherweight champion, and a 2-time Korean Super Flyweight title challenger, but is the naturally smaller fighter.
The remaining title bout will be a Korea Light Middleweight title bout between 37 year old Doo Hyup Kim (9-6-1, 5) and 28 year old Boo Hyun Baek (4-6-1, 1). Kim debuted back in 2004, as a 23 year old, but has seen his career move incredibly slowly due to the politics of Korean boxing, only fighting 4 times between 2004 and 2014. In recent years Kim has been busier but has been stopped in his last two bouts. As for Baek he debuted in 2011, and has also had his career slowed by a lack of activity, as well as a string of 5 straight losses between 2012 and 2016, he has how ever avoided defeat in his last two bouts and should be favoured here.
