Korean Fighter Choi Wins His 2nd K-1 Match

Boxing champion-turned-fighter Choi Yong-soo of South Korea won his second K-1 match Sunday in Seoul over Yoshiharu Nasu of Japan.

In the K-1 Fighting Network KHAN 2007 Championship held at Olympic Park, in southeastern Seoul, the former WBA super featherweight class champion beat the challenger 2-0 in a decision.

The 34-year-old Korean mixed martial arts fighter made an impressive K-1 debut in September, knocking out Driton Rama of Sweden in the first round of a K-1 face-off in Seoul.

In December, he was scheduled to fight with Japan’s Masato in the K-1 Dynamite but was forced to put off his second outing due to a knee injury sustained during a training session in Thailand.

In the other match at the Sunday event, South Korean Park Yong-soo, a former Taekwondo junior national team member, suffered his first K-1 loss, after winning first two matches since his debut in June. Park, 25, fell to Kaoklai Kaennorsing of Thailand 3-0 in the decision.
