To begin a new weekend we actually start with a regional title bout as Thai veteran Tabtimdaeng Na Rachawat (46-2, 30) defends his PABA Bantamweight "Super title".
Despite being a genuine veteran and a fighter who wouldn't look too out of place in a world title bout Rachawat is facing French novice Tarek Krab (1-4, 1).
As a boxer Krab is better known by the name Anthony Romphogym and is actually based in Thailand. Unfortunately for Krab being based in Thailand has been a painful experience and he has suffered losses to Medgoen Singsurat, Pungluang Sor Singyu and Kwanpichit OnesongchaiGym. This is likely to be another.
Other than the Rachawat/Krab bout we're unsure what will be on the card but it will be televised on Thai Channel 7 at 14:30 local time.
Outside of Asia, the Iranian born Fatah Baghban (8-5, 5) is expected to fight in his adopted homeland of Las Palmas in Spain. Baghban is likely to face Adasat Rodriguez (8-2-1, 6).
In the US the hard punching Filipino Jundy Maraon (15-0-1, 12) looks to move a step closer to a world title fight as he faces fellow unbeaten Juan Carlos Payano (13-0, 7) in what is being described as a WBA Bantamweight title eliminator.
Payano is highly regarded (WBA #5, WBC #11 and IBF #14) whilst Maraon actually enters this bout unranked, despite this there is real belief in the Maraon camp
