Whilst Yang is known to the hardcore what few will actually know is that he started his career in South Korea. It was in Korea that he fought his first 7 professional contests and has fought 9 of his 16 professional bouts including this bout with little known Korean Sang-Hyun Shin way back in August 2008.
Going in to the bout Shin was 2-4 and very little known, even to Korean fans. Yang on the other hand was 5-0 and viewed as a talented fighter with a lot of potential. This fight saw Yang's potential tested and, as with many fights involving South Koreans, it was actioned packed.
We would like to thank Nova Boxing for this bout, their collection of Korean fights really is amazing thought you need to dig deep to find the hidden gems.
