There's not much Asian action on the first Friday of the month, but that is of course the calm before the storm of Saturday's hectic schedule.
Of the three bouts involving Asian's only one is a title fight. That's a female bout in Australia that sees the unbeaten Pania Marshall (2-0, 1) take on Thailand's Petchsaifah Sor Sommai (0-0) for a very small minor title
On the same show we'll see Jimmy James (10-3-1, 2) face Thai journeyman Phompetch Twins Gym (7-6, 4) in a bout that looks like a record padder for James. Phompetch has won just once in his last 7 and it's hard to see him picking up a win here, despite the fact James is returning to the ring after 5 years of inactivity!
Although the day's action is limited we do interestingly get the chance to see the American debut of China's Que Xu (9-1-1, 2), who won the League of Fists' Featherweight tournament earlier this year. Xu, who has won his last 9, will be up against Fernando Fuentes (9-7, 3) and whilst he should be favoured this is a step up in class for the Chinese hopeful.
