Korean boxing may not be on a high but it's fair to say it's not completely dead. Their one, real hope, is the heavy handed and highly entertaining Min Wook Kim (12-1, 9). Kim hasn't been the most active over the last few years as he's uprooted his boxing and gone from fighting in his native Korea to fighting and training in Mexico, a country that has a much stronger and more solidified view on professional boxing.
Earlier this year we saw Kim make his Mexican debut as he made light work of Lizandro Dos Santos. It was Kim's first bout in more than 18 months though he looked as sharp as ever as he destroyed his ill matched foe.
We now know that part 2 of Kim's come back will take place on July 18th as he again takes to the ring and looks to continue to build his momentum.
At the moment details, other than a date, are scarce though we're hoping for an update on an opponent and a venue shortly.
Given the ability of the "Snyper" their is every chance he could help turn around the fortunes of Korean boxing, and that's certainly what we're hoping for from the fantastically promising 28 year old, who has previously held the OPBF Light Welterweight title.
