Going in to the bout Kim was a hotly tipped but inexperienced Korean prospect he'd fought just 7 times as a professional and was top 10 ranked by the OPBF. Jakosalem however was top 20 ranked by the WBC, a veteran of more than 20 bouts and the reigning OPBF champion, having beaten Min Wook Kim's compatriot, and future opponent, Pan-Soo Kim for the title.
For many this was the bout where Kim became a fighter to keep an eye on for others it was a case of Jakosalem being a weak OPBF champion. As it's turned our we dare say the Filipino is better than he looked here but Kim is something a bit special.
