South Korea icon and hero Ju Hee Kim showed exactly why she is the light
flyweight champion with an emphatic 6th round stoppage over the game
Ploynapa Sakrungrueng from Thailand to retain her World Boxing Federation
World Title Friday March 30 in Seoul.

Before a packed University Hall of almost three thousand, Kim thrilled the
many students at the university where she studied with a dominant display,
and improved her impressive record to 16-1-1 (7). Sakrungrueng dropped to
5-2 (0).

After an even and slow paced first round, Ju Hee showed impressive skills
and a good work rate, while Sakrungrueng was always dangerous on the
counter. However, as the fight wore on the champion gained more and more
control, and finally overwhelmed the challenger in the sixth.

Ju Hee will defend again in North Korea at the end of the year. Special
mention must be made of WBF representative Moon Sung for his outstanding
contribution to the excellence of the event. WBF Supervisor in attendance
was president Howard Goldberg from South Africa.     — For questions and inqiries, feel free
