The KBF have confirmed that the unbeaten Geun Sik Choi (3-0, 2) [최근식] will get his first title bout in October, as he fights for the KBF Super Middleweight title. The former amateur star will be up against Bang Jong Min (3-6-1)* [방종민] who fought in 2013 for the Korean title, back before the Korean title picture became a mess of KBF, KBC, KBA and KPBF.
This bout will take place an intriguing card on October 9th and will see Choi attempt to build on a really promising start to his professional career, which has been stop-and-start to say the least. The unbeaten fighter debuted in October 2014 then spent more than a year away from the ring before returning in March this year, when he beat Se He Joo and then against this past June when he scored a 90 second victory over Muhammad Imam. Despite the inactivity he does look like he has the tools to make a mark, at least regionally.
Little really stands about Min, though his boxrec is apparently lacking one of his career defeats as recognised by the KBF. Given his record he is supposed to be there to lose to the unbeaten Choi who could become another face for the KBF, who have pushed Ye Joon Kim and Su Yun Hong hard and appear to be doing the same with Je Ni Ma. Despite being the under-dog Min is the more experienced fighter and debuted way back in 2008!
