Ji-Hoon Kim Toughs Out Decision Over Alisher Rahimov, Vince Thompson Out-Points Joell Godfrey

When pickings are slim on the U.S. fight scene due to cancellations, dramas and whatever other nonsense, fight fans need something a bit more rock solid to cling to when on the brink of starvation. 

It's nice having a program to depend on, and Friday Night Fights came through with a little bit of Ji-Hoon Kim action, which by now should probably be designated an official boxing idiom whether he's fighting or not. Kim is the type of fighter that's able to elevate the overall entertainment value of a boxing broadcast, and even when the co-feature is mostly snooze-worthy. 

He and fellow lightweight Alisher Rahimov traded shots and took turns executing their respective game plans over 10 rounds in St. Louis, and a difficult to score bout ended with Kim winning by unanimous decision. In said dreary co-feature, undefeated heavyweight prospect Vince Thompson took a wide unanimous verdict over bland should-be cruiserweight Joell Godfrey in 8.
