Kim became a world champion courtesy of a sensational win over Panama's Luis Ibarra, a man who entered the ring in 1980 as the WBA Flyweight champion. Kim started like a house of fire and it was one of those very rare times where where see a fighter clicking on all cylinders. It was amazing from the aggressive Korean who, for a night, looked genuinely unbeatable. A fantastic win and very memorable performance by the home fighter.
