Like all fight fans we love watching brawlers. There is just something about watching a fighter happily take a shot to the face to try and land his own that is just so aesthetically pleasing . For some reason the brawling style has almost been personified over the years by fighters from South Korea who have often seemed happy to take a shot land one.
The last "big name" Korean was Ji Hoon Kim, a man who fought numerous bouts in the US where he made a notable fan base for his style and willingness to exchange punches with out a thought towards defense. Although known for his bouts in the US he did fight numerous times in his native South Korea and, at the time of writing, his last bout was in Korea as he took on Indonesia's Roy Tua Manihuruk for the WBO Asia Pacific Welterweight title.
The bout was a mismatch from the second it was signed though as with all of Kim's bouts it was a fun bout to watch from the opening round to the final bell. Thankfully for Kim's health however it was a bout that saw him avoiding any serious punishment and many have suggested this will be his last bout.
