Duk Koo Kim
Duk Koo Kim?
He's the guy that was killed in the ring by
Ray Mancini. Not super skilled, but trained like
a monster. Fought on pure heart, guts, and drive.
A lot of fighters claim "you have to kill me to
beat me," Kim did too, but in his case it was true.
Kim was supposed to be a cake walk for Mancini, but
proved to be one of his toughest fights. Mancini
was amazed by how hard Kim came on, how he appeared
unafraid, and each time he hit him, Kim just came
back for more. Now that's a fighter.
Couture, Newton, Pulver, Bustamante, Rod Nogueira (sp?), Serra, Ortiz
