Attention turns to Korea on Friday as the KBF sanction a notable card.
In one of those bouts we'll see the once beaten Dong Hee Kim (7-1-1, 2) defending his title KBF Light Welterweight title against the unbeaten In Duck Seo (8-0, 5). The champion won the title more than a year ago, but has only fought in international bouts since then, rather than defending his belt, and as a result this will be his first defense. Notably Kim is on an 8 fight unbeaten run following a decision loss on his debut back in November 2014. The unbeaten Seo is a 23 year old who debuted in 2015 and has taken 4 unbeaten records already, and is currently riding a 3 fight KO run, which he will be looking to extend here.
The other bout of note was supposed to be another title bout, as KBF Bantamweight champion Jin Wook Lim (8-5-5, 2) was supposed to defend his title against Sung Baek Noh (3-8-2). We have since been informed that Lim's opponent has chanced and that it will no longer be a title bout, with Lim looking to bounce back to winning ways following a stoppage loss to Shun Kubo back in November 2016
