The biggest bout to feature an Asian this coming Friday will see unbeaten Filipino Genisis Libranza (11-0, 8) battle with former IBF Flyweight champion Moruti Mthalane (32-2, 21), in a bout for the IBO Flyweight crown. Coming in to this Mthalane will be looking to make his third defense of the title, a title that he won back in 2014 against Jether Oliva. Although the champion Mthalane hasn't fought since December 2015 and is 35 later this year. Aged 23 Libranza is a real unknown, but a win here would really boost his standing in the sport, and could well see him become one of the new faces at Flyweight. Although it doesn't look it on paper this really could be a very interesting bout.
In the US fight fans will be able to see American based Kazakh novice Ashkat Ualikhanov (1-1, 1) battle against Antonio Sanchez (5-4-2, 3), in what looks like a well matched bout on paper.
