Korean action in late Feb!
Earlier today we were made aware of a KBF show announced for February 27th
The main event of the Buffalo Promotion's show will see KBF Light Welterweight champion Woo Shin Kim (6-1-3, 2) [김우신] defend his belt against Dong Hee Kim (4-1-1, 1)* [김동희]. This will be Woo Shin's first defense of the title that he won last year, when he over-came Sung Tae Kim, whilst Dong Hee is thought to be fighting in his first title fight, however it's clear his boxrec record is incomplete.
In the chief support bout fans will see unbeaten Korean hopeful Dong-Hoon Yuk (8-0, 4)* [육동훈], the current KBF Lightweight champion, battle against Indonesian visitor Hero Tito (11-9-1, 3). For Yuk this will be his first bout since claiming the KBF title last year, when he beat Jae Sun Kim, whilst Tito will be making his Korean debut. Although this will be Tito's first bout in Korea he is well travelled with bouts in Japan, Timor-Leste, Macau, Australia, Thailand and China.
Although it's not clear which particular title will be on the line, that main supporting bout is listed as an “Oriental” title bout at Lightweight.
Another supporting bout will again see local fighters facing a visitor as Hyun Woo Yuh (2-0, 2)* [유현우] battles Rusmin Kie Raha (14-8-2, 3) in what looks like a good test for the unbeaten Yuh, who has been tipped by some as a potential future star of Korean boxing.
*Note-Several records differ between the KBF and Boxrec.com. The records used are the KBF ones.
