In a weekend dominated by female fights through the America's, Asia action seems to be quite quiet with only one card currently listed as scheduled on Friday (though Asians are fighting in both Australia and Nigeria to give the day an international feel).
The currently listed Japanese card appears to be incomplete featuring just a solitary bout Ryosuke Kinoshita (8-8-1, 2) looks to extend a 3 fight winning streak. In his way stands Yusuke Usui (12-11-2, 5) who himself takes in to the ring a 5 fight unbeaten streak.
Although the bout isn't one that will set pulses racing internationally it should actually be a very evenly matched bout and could end up being a solid bout.
In Australia we get the usual mismatches that are becoming common down there. Featured in those bouts in Australia are an appearance by Yakub Ton (4-8, 2) who takes on Ozan Craddock (3-0, 3) and Ton's compatriot Rivo Rengkung (30-14-5, 10) who faces Brett William Smith (15-2-1, 7). Although Rengkung has an impressive looking record he has been unable to score a single win outside of Indonesia in 11 attempts.
It's not just the Indonesian pair that will be in action in Australia but also Thai Dennapa Bigshotcamp (12-25-3, 4) who faces Jason Kanofski (17-7-3, 3). Bigshotcamp has been stopped in his last 2 fights, both in Australia and it would be far from a shock to see that become a trio of stoppage defeats.
Arguably the most bizarre bout of the day is the professional debut of Shahin Adygezalov (0-0). Born in Calilabad, Azerbaijan though based in Russia, Adygezalov will make his debut in Abuja, Nigeria.
