Bucheon, South Korea
This coming Saturday the KBA will be sanctioning their next show, and it's one with a very interesting main event and a potential war of the year in the chief support bout.
That main event will see the fun to watch In Duck Seo (12-3-2, 7) taking on former OPBF Light Middleweight champion Jung Kyoung Lee (8-3-1, 4) in a bout for the WBA Asia Light Middleweight title. Seo is incredibly fun to watch and his KO a few fights back over Tysinn Best is one of the best KO's we've seen in recent years, he's crude but a tough and powerful puncher. In Lee was have a crude but hard working and rugged fighter, who moved to boxing from MMA. With these two in the ring together we're expecting a very fan friendly war, even if it's not likely to be the prettiest of bouts.
Interestingly there is another sub-story regarding the Seo Vs Lee bout, with the two having previously fought back in 2017, with the bout ending in a 4 round technical draw. Both will be looking to make sure they get the win this time.
In a KBA ranking bout we'll get a potential war as Jong Seon Kang (10-0-2, 6) and Seong Yeong Yang (8-2-5, 4) battle in a 10 round. Whilst we have high hopes for the main event this could easily outshine it with Kang and Yang both being flawed fighters who use aggression as their best form of defense. Expect this one to be a crazy war of action between two men who love to let their hands go, and have clear defensive flaws. Last year both men impressed us, and we expect them to impress again here. It's worth noting that the winner here will likely be moved towards a KBA title fight.
In an under-card bout we'll see the unbeaten Min Hyuk Jang (5-0, 5) take on Won Hyung Yoon (2-4-1, 1). Coming in Jang has stopped all 5 of his opposites in a combined 9 rounds and will be favoured here, however on paper this is a step up for him and Yoon hasn't been stopped. We're hoping to see questions asked of Jang here and not just another quick blow out.
