The most notable show for us this coming Friday takes place in China, and although it's not a huge show it does have some interesting local fighters on it.
One of the local hopefuls is unbeaten teenager Ju Wu (6-0-2), who takes a massive step up in class to take on Filipino veteran Adones Aguelo (31-19-2, 21) in a very tough looking 8 rounder. This is a legitimately tough bout for the unbeaten man, but a win here really would leave it's mark on the regional scene.
A local we're next expecting to be tested too much is Yu Che Li (5-1-2, 3), who should easily over-come Indonesian veteran Waldo Sabu (13-14, 3). Sabu can be a banana skin, as seen when he stopped Ernesto Saulong, but in reality those performances where he actually turns up to win are few and far between.
Baja California, Mexico
Once beaten US based Kazakh Sagadat Rakhmankul (4-1, 2) makes his Mexican debut as he takes on highly experienced Daniel Armando Valenzuela (36-36-2, 21), who is fighting for the 75th time. The 25 year old Rakhmankul bounced back from a November loss to Nicklaus Flaz by beating Brandon Adams in March and will be looking to notch another win here, a win that is expected for him. Despite having 74 bouts to his name Valanezuela is only 29. Sadly 31 of his 36 losses have been inside the distance and whilst he is at home, in Mexico, he will be expected to be stopped against.
Unbeaten Azeri born American based Elvin Gambarov (4-0, 4) takes a huge step up to face off with veteran Larry Smith (10-40-1, 7). On paper this should be an easy win for the 27 year old Gambarov, as Smith is 40 and is 1-38-1 in his last 40, but it is still a step up for the Azeri who has really only faced total novices so far.
