Olympics – 1988 Seoul – Highlights of Boxing Controversy & Interview With US Ambassador James Lilley


Boxing at the 1988 Seoul was shrouded with controversy after controversy….starting with USA Andrew Hembrick being given the wrong time for his bout with a home grown Korean fighter….as he loses by a no-show…..USA Roy Jones being chosen the outstanding boxer at the Olympics by the International Amateur Boxing Federation….even after losing to another home country Korean….when every other observer knew Jones clearly won the fight….or the story of USA Todd Foster who was called back to the right to fight Korean Chun Jin-Chul a second time….after he had beaten him the first time.

With all this controversy…..Bob Costas interviews US Ambassador to Korea, James Lilley, regarding the relations of the US with South Korea….which is interesting….cuz the same issues that Ambassador Lilley taks about here…..still exist in Korea today.
