February 27th 2011- Gymnasium, Mungyeong, South Korea
Ji Hoon Kim (21-7, 18) Vs Dong Hyuk Kim (3-0, 1)
In recent years Korean fighters have struggled to make a mark above OPBF level with only one Korean really managing to make a name for himself. That was Ji Hoon Kim who got the chance to show his heart, bravery and power in the US. Sadly Ji Hoon Kim's limitations stopped him reaching the top though they did help make him, for a while, one of the sports must watch fighters. In his most notable bout in Korea Ji Hoon Kim fought compatriot Dong Hyuk Kim for the South Korean Lightweight title and the bout was something a bit special with both hammering home major shots in what become a grueling and exciting war that tested each man's resolve. If you've not seen this one it's well worth a watch.
Notable whilst Ji Hoon Kim was off making his name in the US Dong Hyuk Kim was winning the OPBF Super Featherweigth title, a title he lost to Jomthong Chuwatana courtesy of a gruesome injury. If you've not seen that fight it's another that is well worth a watch, especially if you do so ahead of Jomthong's upcoming defence against Daiki Kaneko.
