Indonesian promoter Hodlif Hun announced that his next show would take place in Jakarta on March 29th, and would feature 7 bouts in total. It's not a huge card, or one that will capture much international attention but does feature some interesting sub stories, including a couple of 6 round bouts for the promoters own title, something we seem to be seeing a lot of in Indonesia this year, a 12 round national title bout and some notable under-card fighters.
The most notable fighter involved in the 4 round under-card bouts is the unbeaten Patrick Liukhoto (9-0-1, 7), a very promising Indonesian prospect, who really should be in more testing bouts than he's in here against a domestic journeyman.
In the 2 bouts scheduled for 6 rounds we'll see the promoters titles on the line. One of those bouts will Musa Andy Letding (12-10-4, 6) taking on Boido Simanjuntak (24-53-2, 10), in a bout set at Lightweight, whilst the other will be at Heavyweight and will see Marco Tuhumury (13-22-2, 5) battle Rahman Ambodalle (6-11-2, 3), in a bout to finish their trilogy.
It's the 12 round main event that really is the big story however as Flasidus Nuno (1-0) fights for an Indonesian Bantamweight title against Dedi Saputra (2-5) in a 12 round bout. Whilst Saputra is nothing special it is risky putting Nuno in a 12 round bout at this early stage of his career, given he has only had 4 rounds as a professional, though we're going to look forward to seeing how he does here. Saputra hasn't beaten anyone of note, but has mixed with good domestic opposition and could certainly cause Nuno problems here.
