According top a number of Indonesian sources it seems that former world title challenger Roy Mukhlis (28-5-3, 21) will be back in the ring on April 22nd to face former OPBF Super Featherweight champion Allan Tanada (13-4-3, 5), of the Philippines.
The bout was announced recently at an event held by iNewsTV, who will be broadcasting the fight across Indonesia.
The contest will be for the lightly regarded WPBF Asia Pacific Lightweight title and will be one of three title bouts on the card, with two KTI shows also set to be staged on the show though it's unclear if they will be televised or not.
For those who haven't seen the two men before Mukhlis is one of the more notable Indonesian's and has fought on the road in a number of notable bouts, including a world title challenger against Takashi Uchiyama in Japan in 2010 and a loss to Denis Shafikov in Macau last year. He has also gone 1-1-1 with local rival Hero Tito.
Tanada is also best known for his exploits on the road having scored a major shock in 2010 over Rikiya Fukuhara to claim the OPBF title at 130lbs before losing it in his next bout to Masao Nakamura, with both of those bouts taking place in Japan. He has fought in the USA, Puerto Rico, Australia and Russia.
