Popular Indonesian warrior Daud Yordan (36-3-0-1, 24) is set to return to the ring on March 25th, with a bout in Singapore.
Originally Indonesian sources reported that Yordan would be facing an unknown Filipino foe on the date, though since then he has been told he will be up against Thailand's Campee Phayon (11-2, 87), who has bounced back from back-to-back defeats with two success wins including a notable upset win against Yoshimichi Matsumoto.
Although both fighters have fought over 10 rounds before the bout will only be an 8 rounders, due to the short notice of the bout.
If Yordan wins his team have indicated that they will pursue world title fights later in the year. They also admitted that they had been offered a world title fight on short notice, with Terry Flanagan said to have been the champion offering the bout, but Yordan's team turning accepting their man needed a warm up after having been of action since last June, when he beat Cristian Rafael Coria in Uruguay.
Although a Lightweight Yordan is said to be thinking about a move to 140lbs for a potential bout with Ricky Burns if a deal can't be done to secure "Cino" a Lightweight world title fight later in the year. He will however be one of a number of fighters chasin a potential show down with Burns later in the year.
