We get the most notable bout with an Asian fighter in Tanzania of all places, as upset minded Filipino Arnel Tinampay (26-24-1, 12) takes on local foe Hassan Mwakinyo (15-2, 11). The 25 year Tanzanian is riding a 5 fight winning run into this bout including a big win in the UK over Sam Eggington. The 35 year old Tinampay isn't a big name in the sport but he has proven to be an excellent journeyman, who scores more than his share of upsets. Although no world beater Tinampay has scored regular upsets and will be looking to add another one here!
Auckland, New Zealand
As well as the bout in Tanzania there will also be a number of bouts in Auckland featuring Asian fighters.
One of those bouts will see Indian fighter Siddharth Ravindra Varma (5-3-1-2, 2) take on unbeaten Russian born Kiwi Andrei Mikhailovich (11-0, 6). We don't expect Varma will have much of a chance here, but it'll be good to see what the 21 year old Mikhailovich can do as he looks to build on wins over the likes of Chase Haley and Gunnar Jackson already this year.
In a potentially politically charged bout we'll see Pakistan's Nadir Baloch (8-0, 7) take on Indian foe Inderjeet Singh (2-0), with both men risking their unbeaten records. Given the political issues between the two countries this is a bigger bout that it should be. Baloch was a notable amateur who has already been fighting in 10 round bouts. Singh has only fought 7 career rounds and should be seen as the clear under-dog here.
Another Pakistan Vs India bout will see the unbeaten pairing of Muhammad Bilal (6-0-1, 5) and Suresh Kumar (3-0-2, 2) face off. Bilal is a 24 year old from Karachi who is looking to bounce back from a technical draw against Geisler AP. Kumar on the other hand is fighting for the 6th time in just over 7 months, but this will only be the second time he has faced someone who isn't making their debut.
