On Sunday Korean fans will get the chance to see some televised action courtesy of the KBC who are sanctioning a Myung Woo Cha promoted card in Hoengsoeng. The headline of the card is a pair of title bouts and thankfully all 4 fighters involved in those bouts made their divisional limited today.
The first of those title fights will see Ik Soo Han (7-3, 2) defending his Korean Super Featherweight title for the first time as he battles against the once beaten Jae Ho Kim (5-1, 1). On the scales Han was 129½lbs, marginally lighter than when he won the belt with his 4th round KO against the experienced Jong Won Won last November. The challenger was the marginally heavier man weighing in at 129¾lbs, slightly heavier than he was last time out, when he stopped Kenji Fujiyama in a round back in December.
The other title fight will see the unbeaten Eun Hye Lee (6-0, 1) defending her WBO Asia Pacific female Flyweight title for the first time as she takes on former world title challenger Eun-Young Huh (6-2-1). Lee, the taller fighter, was well inside the limit at 111lbs exactly ½lb heavier than when she won the title last December with a clear decision over Lady Love Sampiton. Huh on the other hand made the weight bang on at 112lbs more than 10lbs heavier than she was when she challenged Momo Koseki for the WBC Atomweight title in her most recent bout, almost 2 years ago.
