A busy week in Asian boxing takes a bit of a light breather on Thursday with only a sole bout of interest seemingly scheduled.
The sole bout, which takes place in Victoria, Australia, sees Filipino-born Australian based Czar Amonsot (24-3-3, 14) attempting to defend his PABA Light Welterweight title for the first time. The former world title challenger, originally from Bohol in the Philippines, will be taking on Indonesia's Stevi Ongen Ferdinandus (15-5, 8) the former holder of the very belt that Amonsot now holds.
Although Ferdinandus hasn't, traditionally been a great traveller going 1-5 outside of Indonesia, he is 1-1 in Australia and will be looking for his second victory there as he battles the resurgent Amonsot in what should be an excellent match up.
With an action packed Wednesday it was always likely that Thursday was going to be a let down, however that day does still give us some interesting action thanks to an Australian card that's shown on Australian FOX.
The main event sees former world title challenger Czar Amonsot (23-3-3, 13), of the Philippines, battling Australian Steven Wills (17-1-2, 9) for the PABA Light Welterweight title.
Although born in Bohol, Amonsot is now based in New South Wales and his last 4 bouts have been in Australia with him running up a 4 fight unbeaten record. Saying that however he was beaten the last time he faced a native Australian, losing to Michael Katsidis back 2007.
Also on the card is a bout featuring Thailand's Anuntachai Sor Por Lor Krungthep (5-5, 3), who fights the unbeaten Ibrahim Balla (2-0, 2) and also a bout for Russain born Dominic Shchukin (1-1-1, 1) who fights the promising Kye MacKenzie (4-0, 2)
