Default Sang-Hyun Kim vs. Fitzroy Guisseppi

Anyone have any in-depth details about this bout.

Some 'sketchy' and minimal information.

June 3, 1979

* WBC Light-Welterweight Champion, Sang-Hyun Kim (South Korea) 27-2-2 (17 KO's) makes the 'first defense' of his World Championship.

The new Champion,, Knock-out winner over Saensak Muangsurin in December 1978, gets an easy title defense over the #10 WBC-ranked Fitzroy Guisseppe.

The 24 1/2 year-old Champion will be making his defense on his home ground, in South Korea, at the ChangChung Gymnasium,
in Seoul, South Korea - on Sunday June 3, 1979.

Fitzroy Guisseppe, of little Trinidad and Tobago, is 31 years-old
and Light-Welterweight Champion of the Island.

Posting a record of 34-13-4 (17 KO's), Fitzroy is given 'no-chance' to defeat Sang-Hyun Kim, and is listed as a 10-1 underdog.

Philippine,,,,,,,,,,

Hard to get the correct results regarding this bout.

Sunday - June 3, 1979

WBC Light-Welterweight Championship Bout

ChangChung Gym, Seoul, South Korea

* Sang-Hyun Kim ......27-2-2 (17 KO's)
vs.
#10 Fitzroy Guisseppi.....34-13-4 (14 KO's)

Sang-Hyun Kim

South Korea's, Sang-Hyun Kim is making the 'first defense' of his title, after 'upsetting'
(KO 13) WBC Champion, Thailand's - Saensak Muangsurin 13-1-0 (10 KO's) in December 1978.

The 5' 10" tall southpaw, is a pure boxer-puncher, who throws a high-volume of punches per round.
In punching-power, Sang-Hyun Kim is very accurate, and likes to work his right jab overtime in
setting up his best power-punch, the straight left-hand, which he delivers with precision.
The 24 year-old, exhibits good ring generalship, and has very good footwork, to go with a sound defense.
He has only been 'floored' twice in his '31-bout' career.

His 'upset' victory over Saensak Muangsurin, was more of a result of accumulated punches,
before he finished off the Champion with a single straight left-hand to the jaw.

After a 'brilliant' amateur career, the 18 year-old Sang-Hyun Kim turned professional on September 25, 1973 -
and competed as a 135 lb. Lightweight. Fighting in Busan, South Korea, Sang-Hyun went
undefeated in his first '17-bouts' by compiling a record of 15-0-2 (7 KO's).

In January 1977, Sang-Hyun Kim moved up to 140 lbs. In his first bout out of South Korea,
Sang-Hyun travelled to Indonesia to challenge for the OPBF Light-Welterweight Championship,
versus the 'talented' #6 WBC / #10 WBA Wongso Suseno 37-1-0 (19 KO's).
In front of 30,000 Jakarta fans, Sang-Hyun lost his 'first professional bout', as he was defeated
by Wongso Suseno in a 'close' 12-Round Decision. (Scorecards; 115-114 / 116-114 / 117- 115)

After a 'win' in South Korea, Sang-Hyun was back in Indonesia in September 1977, losing another
'close' Decision (L Majority Dec 10) to 'Speedy' Sperling Pangaribaun 22-4-3 (9 KO's).
(Scorecards; 47-43 / 46-44 / 45-45).

Sang-Hyun Kim returned to South Korea with a record of 16-2-2 (8 KO's), where he fought
his remaining bouts.

From October 1977 thru August 1988, Sang-Hyun won his next '6-bouts' (5 KO),
improving to, 22-2-2 (13 KO's), as well as working his way up to the #14 WBC Light-Welterweight.

During this period, Sang-Hyun started to use a more 'patient' approach, as opposed to his
previous 'fast-pace' style. Working more, behind his accurate right jab, the South Korean southpaw
was able to set-up his power punch, the straight left-hand more frequently.

On September 23, 1978 - in Busan, South Korea, he captured the OPBF Light-Welterweight
Championship by 'upsetting' (W Dec 12) #3 WBC-ranked Filipino Moises Cantoja 21-4-3 (5 KO's) by
a 'convincing' (W Dec 12).
Moises Cantoja had been undefeated in '4-years' and was in-line for a December 1978 challenge
with WBC Light-Welterweight Champion Saensak Muangsurin.

The victory, improved the 23 1/2 year-old Sang-Hyun Kim to 23-2-2, and moved the 'new' OPBF Champion up to
the #3 WBC Light-Welterweight.

On November 18, 1978 - In Busan, South Korea, Sang-Hyun Kim battles Thailand southpaw 'power-puncher'
and previously #1 WBA-ranked, Tongta Kiatayupakdi 27-2-0 (16 KO's).
The Thai Light-Welterweight is a 'stable-mate' of WBC Champion, Saensak Muangsurin.
In a 'short grueling battle', both fighters are hurt and floored, in a 'give-and-take war'. But Sang-Hyun Kim
over-takes the Thai bomber with a high-volume of punches, and Kiatayupakdi collapes under a barrage
in the 4th Round.

The victory over the #8 WBC / #5 WBA Kiatayupakdi was 'impressive', as the Thai-southpaw in his previous bout,
in April 1978 - had gone '6-Rounds' with WBA Champion Antonio Cervantes in a Championship bout.

After 'upsetting' Saensak Muangsurin in South Korea in December 1978 -
Sang-Hyun takes 'two' easy 'non-title bouts' in 1979.
February 10, 1979 - (KO 3) Eddie Boyles 9-6-1 (4 KO's)
March 17, 1979 - (KO 10) Ricardo Arrendondo 77-22-1 (57 KO's)

Note: 29 year-old Mexican Ricardo Arrendondo, is the former WBC Super-Featherweight Champion
(10/10/71 thru 2/28/74). The former Champion is no longer a 'dangerous fighter' as had lost
9 out of his last 11 bouts.

The WBC Champion is looking for 'one-easy title defense', before taking on the Top-Ranked,
Esteban De Jesus.

Fitzroy Guisseppi

Born on April 2, 1948 in Marabella, Trinidad

The Trinidadian turned professional on November 11, 1967.

The 19 year-old, a 5' 7" 130 lb. fighter at the time, was a 'pure boxer' with good
ring skills. Though not a big puncher, Fitzroy was suprisingly strong.

His career debut, was a (KO 1) over Michael Shuler.

Learning his 'profession' was not that easy, as Fitzroy was only able to put together
a 'mediocre record' of 6-5-3 (1 KO) in his first '14-bouts' up through August 1971,
fighting only in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad & Tobago.

In September 1971, at 23 years-old, Fitzroy moved to Kingston, Jamaica, where he
began 'training' at the Independence Gym. An increase in height by 1" and an
additional 5 lbs. of bulk, he looked like a good 5' 8" 135 lb. Lightweight.

In his first bout in Jamaica, with only a 6-5-3 (1 KO) record, Fitzroy got a bout at
the National Stadium, against veteran Jamaican Lightweight and British Commonwealth
Lightweight Champion, 31 year-old Percy Hayles 29-24-6 (9 KO's).

The 'young' Trinidadian gave the experienced Jamaican all he could handle for 10-Rounds,
but it was Percy Hayles who got the 'close' Decision.
(Scorecards; 96-95 / 99-97 / 98-96).

The local promoter was impressed, and signed Fitzroy Guisseppi to a 1-year contract, to fight
exclusively in Jamaica. As well, as work as a boxing trainer.

Over the next 12-months, Fitzroy went 4-0-1 (2 KO's), and upped his 'mediocre' record to
10-6-4 (3 KO's). Which included a (Draw 10) and (W Dec 10) over 'Jamaican Lightweight Prospect'
Desmond Johnson.

In October 1972, Fitzroy left Jamaica, and moved to Belize (near the southern tip of Mexico)
There, Fitzroy scored 'three' easy wins; (KO 7), (W Dec 10) and (KO 4).

In April 1973 - A young 'power-puncher' from Mexico came down, Light-Welterweight
Lupe Galindo 13-2-0 (11 KO's). In a 'mild upset', Galindo stopped (KO 10) Fitzroy in the final round.
It was the first time Fitzroy had ever been floored, and or stopped.

His record dropped to 13-7-4 (5 KO's)

Flea Man,,,

Tongta Kiatayupakdi (Thailand)

Stable-mate of Saensak Muangsurin

Posted a bunch of un-recorded victories, and accumulated an impressive
27-1-0 (16 KO's) by April of 1978.

Obvious Orient connections with the WBA, inserted him as the #1 WBA
Light-Welterweight.

A southpaw, who could bang, but did not like to get 'hit'. Fought well for
'3' Rounds with Kid Pambele, before falling apart after getting hit by those
'long range' right upper-cuts from Cervantes.

In May 1976, Tongta, did beat WBA #6 Light-Welterweight, 23 year-old American
Jimmy Heair 46-8-1 (24 KO's) by decison (W Dec 10) in Bangkok, Thailand, as one
of his scattered recorded wins.

He also fought on several of Saensak Muangsurin 'undercard bouts'.

Default Re: Sang-Hyun Kim vs. Fitzroy Guisseppi

June 1973,

Fitztroy Guisseppi picks up after the shocking KO loss, and comes back
to score '3' straight victories to improve to 16-7-4 (6 KO's).

On February 27, 1974 - Fitzroy gets his 'revenge' by fighting 34 year-old
Jamaican veteran, and British Commonwealth Lightweight Champion and
#10 WBC Lightweight, Percy Hayles 33-26-6 (11 KO's).

The bout is held at the famous 'Bird's Isle' in Belize City, where over 2000
boxing fans attend the 'Wednesday Night at the Fight Card'. In a 'wild and exciting bout',
Fitzroy Guisseppi, after falling behind early, puts on a boxing clinic over the last '5-Rounds',
and has the fans 'frenzied' with his impressive display over the veteran Percy Hayles,
and wins a 'solid' 10-Round Decision.
(Scorecards; 96-94 / 97-95 / 96-94)
The victory improves Fitzroy to 17-7-4 (6 KO's), and he earns a #14 WBC Lightweight
ranking.

Fitzroy adds '3' more wins to his card in 1974, and ups his record to 20-7-4 (8 KO's), and
is now the #11 WBC Lightweight. Fitzroy is aiming for a World Title shot in 1975.

But, on February 15, 1975 - Fitzroy travels to Mexico City, to take on a 'young 17 year-old'
Lightweight-prospect, named Julio 'Lil Mexico' Mendez 13-0-1 (11 KO's). 'Shockingly', the
World-rated Fitzroy is Knocked-out (L KO 2), and with it goes any hope for a 1975 World
Title shot, as he is dropped from the WBC Top 20 Lightweight ratings.

Hoping to get back in the World Ratings - on May 16, 1975 - Fitzroy moves on to Chetumal, Mexico
to take on another 'young Lightweight-prospect'. This one is from the Yucatan Peninsula,
Chango Gomez 17-1-2 (12 KO's). Boxing cautiously early, to avoid one of the 'big-bombs' from the
young prospect, Fitzroy wears down Gomez, and batters him to the canvas '6-times', finally stopping
him by (KO 9).

Fitzroy Guisseppi is now 21-8-4 (9 KO's). But is not rated in the Top 20 Lightweights.

August 16, 1975

Trinidad & Tobago Lightweight Championship

* Fitzroy Guisseppe 21-8-4 (9 KO's)
vs.
* Michael Drayton 17-4-0 (6 KO's)

Scheduled for 15-Rounds, in the Port-of-Spain.

27 year-old boxer, Fitzroy Guisseppi battles 23 year-old 5' 11" 'bean-pole'
Michael Drayton.

The veteran Fitzroy utilizes his fast footwork over the early rounds, to avoid
the long jabs of Michael Drayton. By Round 8, it is Fitzroy who starts to work
inside, and score with short body punches, in hopes of wearing the younger fighter
down.

In Round 12, Fitzroy scores a 'flash-knockdown' by landing a counter right-hand.
The tall Drayton, comes off the canvas to rally back, and shake Fitzroy with
several long lead right-hands, but uses up his energy throwing all his punches.

In Round 14, Fitzroy lands a left hook/right hand which wobbles the now exhausted
Drayton. Fitzroy follows up with a 16-punch flurry, which drops Drayton for the
'count'.

By September 1975,

Fitzroy Guisseppi was ranked the #10 WBC Lightweight.

The WBC Lightweight Champion, Ishimatsu 'Guts' Suzuki appeared to have
a deal with Fitzroy, for a bout in Kingston, Jamaica.

But, the bout never went off, when the local promoters could not come up with
the required guaranteed dollars - $150,000 for the WBC Champion.

Unable to secure a WBC World Title shot, Fitzroy went back to Belize, and on
November 20, 1975 picked up an easy tune-up win, by stopping (KO 7) Mexican-veteran Pantera Del Carmen.

Fitzroy was now at; 23-8-4 (11 KO's).

Fitzroy could have taken the December 4, 1975 WBC Championship bout
with with Ishimatsu 'Guts' Suzuki in Japan,,,,,,,but he optioned out.

Mexican, Alvaro Rojas stepped in,,,,,,,,,and got KO'd in 14.

In the meantime, Fitzroy was in-line for the British Commonwealth Lightweight Title.

On Sunday, February 8, 1976, he took a bout with Guyanese, Lennox Blackmoore 14-1-0 (7 KO's),
in Georgetown, Guyana for something called the 'Central American & South American Lightweight Championship,
at the National Stadium.

Over 20,000 boxing fans turned out, to watch the 25 year-old Guyanan utilize his 5' 10" tall frame
and sharp left jabs, to box the 'daylights' out of Fitzroy, with Referee Bill Brown eventually
stopping the bout at 2:25 of the 10th Round (L TKO 10).

Fitzroy dropped to 23-9-4, and back out of the WBC Top 10 Lightweight rankings.

On Fitzroy in later 1976;

June 18, 1976.......(KO 3) over Mexican, Julio Margon 11-5-2 (3 KO's)

Then, November 26, 1976 - in Port-of-Spain, for the Trinidad & Tobago Lightweight Championship

Fitzroy gets stopped (L KO 10) by future WBC Lightweight Champion, 27 year-old
'unranked' Claude Noel 10-0-0 (9 KO's).

At 24-10-4 (12 KO's), Fitzroy drops out of the Top 25 Lightweights.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In 1977,

From May 14, 1977 thru November 11, 1977 -

Bounces back, by winning '5-Straight Bouts' in Belize, going 5-0-0 (2 KO's),
improving to 29-10-4 (14 KO's), edging back to the #21 WBC Lightweight.

Fitzroy is offered an 'non-title' over-the-weight bout with WBC Lightweight Champion,
Esteban De Jesus, set for November 26, 1977 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The WBC Champion
is looking for one more tune-up bout, before facing Roberto Duran in January 1978.

But, Esteban De Jesus cancels out.

Natonic,,,,,,,,,

I Bow Down To You Sir,,,,,,,,

You Are The Man,,,,,,

Lets hear it for Fitzroy,,,,,,,,the man had determination after losing all those earlier bouts in his career.

The Truth,,,,,,Sang-Hyun Kim did not want to fight NABF Light-Welterweight Champion, Bruce Curry
in June 1979.
