Juan diaz vs lakva sim
Lakva Sim, (born March 10, 1972 as Dugarbaataryn Lkhagva, Mongolian: Дугарбаатарын Лхагва), is a professional boxer. Sim was the first Mongolian boxer to capture a world boxing title. He has held belts as both the World Boxing Association (WBA) lightweight champion and the WBA super featherweight champion.
Sim was born in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. He turned professional in 1995 and won the WBA super featherweight by defeating Takanori Hatakeyama. In that same year he later lost the belt to Jong-Kwon Baek, and in 2002 challenged Yodsanan Sor Nanthachai for the vacant WBA super featherweight title, but lost by decision. He later moved up to lightweight and in 2004 fought Miguel Callist for the vacant WBA lightweight title, winning by TKO. Sim was outboxed and lost his belt in his next fight against Juan Diaz. In 2005, he upset Ebo Elder by a late round TKO.
