Hong Kyoon Shin (9-3, 3)* Vs Hyo Suk Kim (2-0-4, 1)
South Korean boxing really needs to be thankful for the little bit of attention and financing it's currently getting. It's not a lot but it does seem to be keeping sport alive, albeit on life support. The biggest player at the moment seems to be AK Promotions who have put on a number of "professional" looking shows as they have invested in trying to reinvent the sport in Korea. One of the bouts they put on late last year saw Hong Kyoon Shin return to the ring after more than 7 years of inactivity. Shin's opponent was Hyo Suk Kim an unbeaten novice who seems to be a specialist at getting draws.
