It's fair to say that your typical, modern day, boxing fan won't be able to many, if any, active Korean fighters. This weekend however they will get the chance to see a card from Korea live and for free with promoter Daehan Boxing putting their next show on youtube, as well as Korean channel KBS N Sports.
The broadcast on youtube, which we've embedded below, will begin with the under-card bouts, which will feature mostly low level contests though does have touted Japanese female fighter Chaoz Minowa (1-0, 1) [チャオズ箕輪] battling Chan Mi Lim (2-1, 2) in a 6 rounder in the final of the under-card bouts.
Now it's not clear if the Youtube broadcast will show the entire card, though suspicion is that it might, which would mean that fans tuning in to the free stream will get the chance to see a Korean Super Middleweight title fight, between defending champion Geun Sik Choi (3-0, 2) [최근식] and challenger Bang Jong Min (3-6-1)* [방종민], a non title fight between Dong Hee Kim (5-1-1, 1) and Filipino Ernie Sanchez (15-8-1, 6) as well as the main event bout between Je Ni Ma (9-1-3, 8) [마제니] battle Hironobu Matsunaga (10-1, 5) [松永 宏], who face off for the WBO Asia Pacific Light Middleweight title.
Although Korean boxing certainly isn't riding high there is hope there and with more shows being streamed it can help raise the profile and awareness of the Korean scene, which is seemingly on the upturn even if it's a long, long, long way from it's prime of the 80's.
