Default Re: Ki-Soo Kim 'South Korea's First World Champion'

Kis-Soo Kim vs. Nino Benvenuti

The Associated Press scored it.......71-71 (4-4-7 in Rounds).

It was called a South Korean 'clinch-fest'.

The jab and clinch Champion, lost to the 'brawny' South Korean who was just
more aggressive.

After the bout, Bruno Amaduzzi (Nino's Manager) said he would file an immediate protest
with the WBA, and demanded an immediate rematch within 90-Days.

The rematch contract stated that Italian fight promoter - Umberto Branchini had
the rights to stage the rematch in Italy, but that Ki-Soo Kim would have to receive
the same fight purse that the South Korean's gave Nino Benvenuti to come to Seoul.

That is where the 'money' problem developed.
