When we talk about the best active South Korean fighter it's hard to make a strong case for anyone but Light Welterweight contender Min Wook Kim. Kim is not only the best Korean fighter out there but is also the last to have won an OPBF title, a title he won back in May 2012 when he scored a stunning stoppage over then then champion and world ranked Romeo Jakosalem of the Philippines.
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.
