Sadly this coming Friday there isn't much action planned featuring Asian fighters and the only bout we've come across is the planned debut of former Kazakh amateur fighter Darkhan Zhumsakbayev (0-0). Sadly however at the time of writing his opponent hasn't been named.
The 28 year old Kazakh was a decent amateur, though was in a tough Kazakh domestic scene and his opportunities were limited, though he did score a very good win in Thailand over Sailom Ardee in 2015 and was certainly a credible amateur, even if he wasn't a standout. His debut is expected to be a 6 rounder, though with no opponent named a week out we're not expecting anyone too testing for Zhumsakbayev.

This coming Friday fight fans in Florida will get the chance to see Kazakh fighter Darkhan Zhumsakbayev (0-0) make his professional debut, as he takes on Osmel Mayorga (2-0, 1). Although not a massive name in the amateurs Zhumsakbayev has got international amateurs experience and will be looking for a successful debut here as he begins his professional campaign. Mayorga is a US based Nicaraguan fighter who made his debut last year, and has notched two low profile wins. Given his lengthy amateur pedigree it's hard to bet against the Kazakh, though it's unclear how far he'll go in the professional ranks, especially given he's already 28.
