5 Recent Asian Boxing Treats
Over the past few weeks Asian boxing has been quiet, at least near the top tier. Despite that there have been a number of brilliant bouts that fans have over looked. As part of this feature I'm hoping to bring some of those bouts to your attention, and if you missed them the first time around then this is a great chance to catch up with them enjoy the action and perhaps even stumble on a fighter that you may wish to follow in the future.
One interesting note to make about these fights is that 3 were streamed online, world wide, for free, the Korean fights and both of the August 7th bouts, whilst another was shown on free TV in Thailand, the Kongfah Vs Higa bout. For American fans who have been so excited about the PBC it may be worth looking at what the Asian fight fans have been getting for free before applauding Al Haymon a little bit too much. It's also perhaps worth noting that only 3 of the 10 men involved had unbeaten records, and two of them faced each other.
