Sadly when you're matched up against very highly regarded prospects it's unlikely you'll come away with a victory and that's what Pakistan born Kashif Mumtaz (8-37-1, 6) and Thaialnd's Nuengsiam Kiatsongsang (0-4) found out.
The experienced Mumtaz was blown out in double quick time by Australian Olympian Damien Hooper (2-0, 2) who needed just 64 seconds to make a very eye catching impression on Australia Fox. It didn't take Jeff Horn (3-0) much longer to deal with Kiatsongsang who lasted just 162 seconds.
The two Aussies, both former Olympians, really did decimate their over matched rivals.
In Indonesia Thai misfortunes continued with both Kaenpetch Sithpoopetch (8-3, 1) and Veeradej Manopkanchang (1-1) suffering early defeats. Sithpoopetch was taken out in a round by Espinos Sabu (8-0-1, 3) whilst Manopkanchang lasted 2 with Faris Nenggo (7-3-3, 2).
The Indonesian card also saw losses for the wonderfully named Erick Deztroyer (1-2), who was stopped in the second round by Ruben Manakane (12-9, 8) and rather surprisingly Jack Amisa (20-27-2, 14) who was out pointed by novice Tibo Ilduce Monabesa (2-0, 1).
As well as the two cards mentioned above there was also a 13 fight show in Japan which pitted novices against each other. The bouts, all 4 rounders were fought between Minimumweight and Featherweight. Of the bouts 10 went the distance with 3 draws and although no fighters really stood out we'll be keeping a close eye on them in the coming months.
For the sake of simplicity we won't be listing all 13 results.
