The ROAD FC Bantamweight Title has long been a very hotly contested title. The first Bantamweight Tournament yielded the first Champion, Kang Kyoung-Ho, one of the best bantamweight fighters in the world today. After he relinquished the belt to join the UFC, Lee Kil-Woo won the next challenge, then had to return it due to a surgery.


Standout Lee Yun-Jun then fought Moon Jea-Hoon and won, but a tragic health issue kept him from defending. Korea’s best bantamweight Kim Soo-Chul finally got his shot after an incredible win streak, and defeated Kim Min-Woo to become the fourth Champion. At the end of 2017, Kim Soo-Chul suddenly retired and vacated the title

At ROAD FC 052, the last two challengers for the Bantamweight belt will face off for the chance once again to own it. This will be a rubber match, as they have fought twice before, each holding a decision win over the other.


Kim Min-Woo (8-2, Moai Gym) is a very well-rounded fighter with wins over Shoko Sato and Yuta Nezu. His only losses come against Moon Jea-Hoon – which he avenged in their second meeting – and the title match against Kim Soo-Chul.
