Ki-Young Chung (Hangul: 정기영; born November 23, 1959 in Gyeongsangbuk-do, South Korea) is a former professional boxer. During his career, which lasted from 1979 to 1986, Chung won the IBF world featherweight title. Before competing at featherweight, Chung won the Korean super bantamweight title in 1982. He also won the Korean title as a featherweight, along with the OPBF title. His first challenge for a world title came on November 29, 1985 against fellow South Korean Min-Keun Oh. Chung won the fight with a technical knockout in the fifteenth round to become champion. He defended his title twice; knocking out Tyrone Jackson and beating Richard Savage with a unanimous decision. Chung lost his title to Antonio Rivera on August 30, 1986. Rivera won the fight with a tenth round knockout, in what was to be Chung's final professional contest.[1]
