The most notable of the Asian's on the card is former world title challenger Jimrex Jaca (38-6-3, 21). The highly regarded Filipino, ranked #15 by the WBO at Light Welterweight, will be looking to continue his winning streak as he takes on Australian veteran Chad Bennett (32-4-3, 23) in a bout to unify the WBO Oriental Light Welterweight title and the WBO Asia Pacific Light Welterweight title.
Ranked #8 by the WBO Bennett will be hoping the gamble pays off and that he can secure a world title fight with the new WBO world champion Ruslan Provodnikov. Aged 40 however Bennett will likely know that a loss will be the end of his career and the end of his dreams to be a world champion.
The second fight involving an Asian on the Australian card sees the Australia based Michael Correa (3-6-3, 1) looking to end a 4 fight losing streak. The Filipino will be fighting the unbeaten Valentine Borg (5-0, 3) who is unlikely to give away his unbeaten record with out a real fight for it. We're expecting Correa to give a solid a solid effort though drop a decision here.
Note-The Mundine/Mosley fight has been cancelled for unforeseen reasons, we're currently unsure on the status of the two bouts we've mentioned here.
