Earlier today the KBF announced their next show, which is set for March 19th and will feature a pair of titles, one of which is an international bout.
That international bout is for an "Oriental" title, though it's not made clear which specific title it is as it doesn't seem likely to be an OPBF title bout given the political situation of the KBF. The match up will see Korean local Jin-Wook Lim (7-3-5, 1) [임진욱] take on unbeaten Japanese foe Shohei Kawashima (12-0-2, 3) [長谷川昌平] , who will be looking to extend a 6 fight winning run.
From what we understand the bout will be for an IBF regional title, but as mentioned the KBF haven't made anything particularly clear, though they do seem to suggest it'll be for a Super Flyweight belt.
The other title bout is for a KBF Super Flyweight title and will see Yo Han Bae (6-2-1, 1) [배요한]* battle Pil Joon Kim (6-3, 3) [김필준]*. From what we under-stand these two will be battling for a vacant title.
For those interested in watching the show it ill be televised on MBC Sports + and should be an entertaining show, even if the men involved aren't the most well recognised of fighters.
*As is common with these KBF bouts the records of some of those involved are unclear, and we have taken the records stated by the KBF, who have shown an openness to correcting their figures.
