However, both of them are highly anticipated and are aiming for a prize together in this competition with excellent skills and tenacity.
In particular, Park Seong-kyu won the gold medal at the National Rookie Boxing Competition last year and won the runner-up at the National Championships in April this year. Ko Yun-soo has yet to win a prize in a national competition, but Kim Jong-hoon (53), director of the Star Boxing Club in Yeoncheon, who guides them, says that a medal is possible considering his skill and luck.

I hope that local governments and surroundings will pay a lot of attention so that they can grow without losing their dreams.”
