Although the sport has been kept alive in the country it has, for the most part, been at a very low level. Thankfully however that is set to change on April 26th as the country hosts it's first genuinely notable card in well over a year.
According to Indonesian website http://pontianak.tribunnews.com it seems that the card could be a very interesting one.
The main event is set to see the exciting Daud Cino Yordan (33-3, 24) battle against Australian Josh King (18-3, 8) in a bout for the WBO Asian Pacific Lightweight title. The winner of this is hoping to be fast tracked to a WBO world title fight later in the year and in fact the winner would be aiming to earn a top 5 ranking for winning the bout.
It's hoped that the undercard for such a big bout would feature some of Indonesia's most exciting young prospects. This means we could see someone like Tibo Monabesa (7-0, 3), Defry Palulu (11-1, 10) or Iwan Zoda (4-1, 3), if not all 3, and the hope is that one of those could be up against a notable international opponent.
At the moment the card is still being put together though it clearly looks likely to be a very special day for Indonesian boxing fans who will be hoping to see the future of the countries boxing talent.
