Harsh Gill Vs Sung Jin Kwak

Harsh Gill Vs Sung Jin Kwak

20 year-old Harsh Gill (7-0; 6 KO’s), has had a good start in his Amateur career prior to making his pro debut in 2020.  He was a Bronze medallist at the Golden Gloves Vojvodina International tournament at Serbia in 2019. A bronze medal at the All India Open Nationals in 2018 followed a string of Gold medals at the Youth Nationals and School Nationals in the same year. The hard hitting Faridabad boy trains at the Dronacharya Boxing Club with former International Amateur boxer Rajiv Godara.

Gill’s opponent, 44 year old Sung Jun Kwak, is the current reigning WBC Asia Silver champion. Kwak made his Pro debut quite late in his career in 2019. Prior to this contest, he has had 7 wins and 2 losses in the pro circuit. He turned heads when he defeated a much younger Thai boxer with a 4th round KO to win the WBC Asia Silver title in 2021.

This would be the first time that the Indian Boxer is attempting to compete in a 10 Round contest. Gill has won 6 of his 7 fights via Knockouts within the 4th round. Kwak on the other hand has had 2 previous fights scheduled for 10 rounds. That however, may not turn out to be an advantage as he won both those fights inside 6 Rounds via stoppage or a KO.

Who Else is Fighting

The fightcard features 10 other Fights including an 8 round Super Bantamweight contest between Adil Rajesh and Keisham Luckyson Singh. A win for either boxer in this contest would mean a significant jump in their fight profiles in terms of wins against quality  opponents.
