ROAD Fighting Championship announces a match added to ROAD FC 048 which will take place at the Wonju Gymnasium in the ROAD FC hometown of Wonju, South Korea on July 28, 2018. Kim Dae-Sung meets Wonju's Lee Jong-Hwan at middleweight.




Kim Dae-Sung vs Lee Jong-Hwan


Another matchup in the middleweight division will be showcased on the card as Kim Dae-Sung (4-4, Team Crows) meets Wonju's own Lee Jong-Hwan (0-1, ROAD Gym Wonju). Kim is riding a 2-fight win streak with a submission over China Strongman Zhang Jianjun, and a KO over the tough Kuwabara Kyoshi. Lee had a very promising amateur start, but his first pro fight he met the phenom Kwang In-Su and ended up being the first KO victim. With a year under the tutelage of Kim Soo-Chul and Yoo Jae-Nam, he's ready to get back and prove himself.


Kim Dae-Sung versus Lee Jong-Hwan will be experience versus youth as each man seeks to make his mark in the expanding ROAD FC middleweight division.



Middleweight Title Unification Cha Jung-Hwan vs Choi Young


Finally the rematch for the unification of the Middleweight Championship between Champion Cha Jung-Hwan and Interim Champion Choi Young will take place. The first match between Cha and Choi was at ROAD FC 035. Later Choi was injured and unable to defend the belt, so Cha faced Kim Hoon and won a 3-round war which earned him the Interim Middleweight Championship title. The highly anticipated rematch will be full of emotion and aggression.





Also on ROAD FC 048, top middleweight prospect Hwang In-Su will face impressive grappler and excellent striker Yang Hae-Jun. Another middleweight match between homegrown fighters La In-Jae and Jeon Uh-Jin deepens the pool of the division, and will be a clash of two brutal wrestlers. A women's atomweight match between Lee Ye-Ji and Arai Miki will showcase the skills of two very promising and increasingly well-rounded MMA prospects.


On the Young Guns 39 preliminaries, Kim Hyung-Su versus Jeon Chang-Geun will be an interesting match between a wrestler with striking skills and an all-around fighter looking to make their way into the very deep lightweight division. Yoo Jae-Nam versus Han Yi-Moon is a battle between two well-known Korean fighters who have complete skill sets – will Yoo continue his climb or will Han make a brilliant return?
