PXC contender Han Seul Kim plans to spoil Camacho’s welterweight debut

Han Seul Kim-Dojo Drifter-Mike Miguel

After reigning PXC welterweight champ Kadestam pulls out of the title defense against Camacho, Han Seul Kim is more than happy a replacement.

[mks_dropcap style=”square” size=”52″ bg_color=”#1588db” txt_color=”#ffffff”]S[/mks_dropcap]out Korean welterweight Han Seul Kim doesn’t mind the late notice to fight Frank “The Crank” Camacho. After all, another run at the title is exactly what he wants.
 
 
“I’m very excited to say the least,” Kim tells DojoDrifter.com. “I felt I was in line for the title or close to it although it was unfortunate Zebaztian (Kadestam) was injured.”

“I plan to solidify my place as the number one contender by taking Camacho out,” Kim adds.

Since his loss against ‘The Bandit’ for the vacant belt more than a year ago, The Korean Top Team standout is on the right track to make his case for another shot at the title.

Heading to his fight against Camacho, a former lightweight contender now moving to welterweight, Kim owns three consecutive wins over Japanese Nao Yoneda in PXC 51, Jae Woong Kim, and former UFC vet Takenori Sato in back-to-back TOP FC events.

He credits the turnaround to a smarter approach in training since his title bout loss. Unlike in the past where he just trains to fight, he now studies opponents and works on specific strategies. This brought out the best in him in his recent outings, he mentions.

“Before my loss to Zebastian I would train without a game plan. Now, I train with a specific approach to counter my opponent. If you look at my fights since then, I’ve won every round,” a confident Han Seul Kim says.

“I feel like I’ve grown as a fighter, and the biggest evidence of that was my fight against Jae Woong Kim. He had me hurt but I kept my cool and ended the fight with a KO.”

And with the rare opportunity that he has this Friday, he plans to make the most of it and catapult his name back as the number one contender.

“I definitely plan to spoil Camacho’s night. That title is as good as mine!”
