This 1983 Lightweight Bout between Rockin Robin Blake from Levelland, TX verses Korean J. C. Kim was fought on May 26, 1983 at The Showboat Casino in Las Vegas…..as Blake was an up and coming lightweight with an 18 – 0 record coming into this fight….who would eventually fight IBF lightweight champion Jimmie Paul for the title on June 6, 1985….but what made this fight interesting in the universe of boxing is that Rockin Robin’s opponent J. C. Kim would be a 1st round TKO loser….as Blake would start and end Kim’s one round professional career in boxing…. which means that J. C. Kim holds a distinct boxing career record by having fought only one round of professional boxing before he retired…..so, he hold a record that can never be broken…only tied…..as you want to watch this fight to say you saw the shortest career in boxing history.
