In recent months the sport of boxing has been limited by the on going global situation. We've been lucky to see the sport resume in some countries, such as South Korea, Japan and Thailand, but other Asian countries still haven't had fights in months.
Recently it was revealed that there are now plans to bring boxing back to Indonesia, with several promoters and managers speaking about fights.
One report from Indonesia suggests that there could be a show as early as October 25th, but the details on that are somewhat weak due to the situation in the country.
A stronger report however related to comments made by promoter H Welly Koto, who has stated that he is planning an international show that will take place in Padang City, West Sumatra.
According to Rondeaktual Koto has revealed "We are just waiting for Covid-19. As soon as it subsides are sorted. Everything is ready. Me and the supporting sponsors are just going to go"
The hope is to get the event sorted for December, if not earlier, and will feature fighters from Jakarta, the surrounding regional and Thai visitors.
The event will see Koto working with Evi Yandri Rajo Budiman, from the Jakarta Regional People's Representative Council.
At the moment it seems the event is very much in it's early stages of planning, but right now any light for Indonesian boxing is something worth holding on to, and fingers crossed Koto does get to fulfil his plans on bringing back boxing to Jakarta in 2020. The country might not be a big boxing country, but the more countries back, the better for the sport.
