Prokick: Back at the Clayton 2019
Johnny “Swift” Smith of Northern Ireland faces Lee Ji Hoon of South Korea tonight (June 23) in Belfast. The pair tops the “Prokick: Back at the Clayton” event, which marks the second visit of World Kickboxing Network to the country this year.
The contest has been scheduled for WKN Intercontinental title at welterweight (-69.9 kg). Yet, it is only Smith who is eligible to claim the strap if victorious, following the weigh-in results conducted a day before the fight show.
The representative of the country-host, Smith tipped the scales “exactly on weight,” Prokick.com reported. The Korean kickboxer Ji Hoon Lee, who arrived to Belfast on Wednesday, showed 72.8 kg at the official weigh-ins on Saturday.
