South Korean fighter Sung Jun Kim may not be one of the immortal names of Korean boxing but hardcore fans may well know him for his fighter against diminutive Thai Netrnoi Sor Vorasingh from way back in 1978. The two men traded blows in a battle for the WBC Light Flyweight title and although the contest was short it was a rather entertaining scrap with both men happy to throw heavy leather at the other, especially in a fantastic round 3
Whilst the bout was, for one man, a defining victory it was sadly a meeting of tragic figures. The Thai died about 4 years after this bout, aged 23, from an automobile accident whilst the Korean fell suffered personal issues and killed himself in 1989 aged just 35.
