This coming Sunday isn't a stacked day in Asian boxing but it could be a day where were learn a lot about one of the most promising fighters in Asia, who we suspect will be given his first real gut check.
That promising fighter is former Pakistani amateur stand out Muhammad Waseem (3-0, 3) who takes of former world title challenger Jether Oliva (24-5-2, 11) in a bout for the vacant WBC silver Flyweight title, essentially moving the winner to within a step or two of a world title bout. Waseem only turned professional last year but has quickly impressed with a trio of stoppage wins and looks to continue his progress here against a very capable Oliva. For Oliva, who has fought a reltive who's who of the lower weights, this is a bout that he must win if he's to remain relevant, it is however a big ask against a fighter who some suspect could go on to become the first Pakistani born world champion.
In the chief support bout fans will see Korean Eun Chang Lee (9-4, 5) take on Indonesian visitor Maxi Nahak (6-11-2, 2) WBA Asia Middleweight champion and seems to see this as a chance of getting some sort of recognition with the WBC, for Nahak the bout is a chance to score his most notable win so far, though he has lost 3 of his last 5 and will be the massive under-dog here.
Seoul, South Korea
As well as the above show there will be another Korean show, this one being held by Buffalo Promotion and held under the banner of the KBF. Like the other Korean show this one will also in Seoul.
The main event of this one will be a KBF Middleweight title bout and should feature 8 under-card bouts.
