Earlier today we were informed that Uzbek hopeful Abdurasul Ismoilov (4-1, 4) [Абдурасул Исмоилов] would be returning to the ring on on March 17th in Busan. Not only was the date and location of his next bout confirmed but also his opponent for that contest, with unbeaten Korean Jong Sun Gang (7-0, 4) [강종선] being in the opposite corner to the Uzbek.
Ismoilov is promoted by Cocky Buffalo, who are promoting this show, and is tipped as a promising Uzbek, despite losing on his debut to the very good Jasur Akhmadjonov. As for Gang He has gone unbeaten but only 1 of his 7 bouts hasn't been against a domestic foe, and it's hard to read much into his record, though he has stopped his last 3 opponents.
The bout is set to be a 6 round contest at 130lbs. More details about the show are expected to be confirmed in the coming weeeks.
