September 10th isn't one of the great days of Asian boxing though has featured a number of interesting bouts over the years.
In 2002 Indonesian fans got the opportunity to see Muhamad Afrizal, AKA Afrizal Cotto, begin his professional career. Sadly the Indonesian suffered life ending injuries in a bout that took place in 2012. Afrizal may not have been a big name in boxing but was a fallen brother who died way too young at just 30 years of age.
In 2011 Filipino fans got a treat as the very talented Genesis Servania announced himself as one of the most promising prospects on the planet. Up to this point Servania had been matched lightly, to say the least, though on this day he stepped up and dominated Gerson Guerrero, a fringe world level fighter who had much more experience than Servania though did little more than eat punches and miss in what was a virtuoso performance form the young Filipino fighter.
Exactly 6 years prior to Servania's break out win American fans got the chance to see another Filipino fighter in action as Manny Pacquiao dominated veteran Hector Velazquez to set up his rematch with Erik Morales. The bout, fought just months after Morales had beaten Pacquiao, saw the Pacman beginning his insane run against Mexican's that began with Velazquez and continued with successive wins over Morales, Oscar Larios, Jorge Solis, Marco Antonio Barrera, Juan Manuel Marquez and David Diaz as the Pacman became the "Mexecutioner".
In 1981 Japanese fans got to see Eijiro Murata defend his OPBF Bantamweight title with a win over Billy Abato. This bout came between his first 2 world title contests with Jeff Chandler, unfortunately however Murata never managed to win a world crown going 0-2-2 in world title bouts with a record of 0-2-1 against Chandler.
