Considered one of Korea’s top lightweights, Song Un Sik was forced to put his career on hold to fulfill his military service commitments. But the drive to return to full-time training and competition remained deeply ingrained in him, and he plans to start his Legend career with a victory. However, this is easier said than done: his first opponent in the Legend Ring will be Australia’s Rob Hill. Hill’s “take-no-prisoners” fighting style and willingness to fight anyone have made him a fan favorite at Legend. He is coming off a Fight of the Night performance against Nam Yui Chul in July, and will be hunting for the same honors at Legend 6. Song is at his best under pressure, and Hill is known to be an absolute bully in the ring. With these two men facing off against one another, fight fans should expect fireworks.
