February 22nd 1987- Indoor Gymnasium, Incheon, South Korea
Hi-Sup Shin (37-2-1, 22) Vs Dodie Boy Penalosa (19-1-1, 8)
Through the 1980's the Korean boxing scene was one of the most exciting as it gave us not only a huge selection of good fighters but also a lot of action fights and fights that seemed able to come alive at a moments notice. One such fight saw the then IBF Flyweight champion Hi-Sup Shin battle against Filipino Dodie Boy Penalosa, a former IBF Light Flyweight champion. We have to say that this one starts slowly but erupts before the ending as the pace suddenly picks up.
Here we include some of the best, most interesting, most exciting or most eye catching videos from around the Asian boxing world.
