This coming Friday looks likely to be a rather quiet day for Asian action, though there is a decent amount of global action taking place, including a British show on the newly launched Fightzone TV, which could end up being a game changer for British fight fans.
Sibur Arena, Saint Petersburg, Russia
Sadly the only real bout of note featuring an Asian fighter will come in Russia as Uzbekistani Heavyweight hopeful Lazizbek Mullojonov (1-0, 1) competes in his second professional bout. The southpaw hopeful, who made his professional debut in January, will be looking to build on a 2nd round TKO win over Alexander Stepanov. Sadly no opponent has been named for Mullojonov, who really does need a test sooner rather than later. The 23 year old was a standout amateur and at just 22 years old it would be a shame to see him meander through the pro ranks whilst he's still this young.
Although we d want to see him step up it is worth noting that Mullojonov has been staying busy with amateur action, and has had several amateur bouts this year as well as his pro debut. We know some aren't fans of fighters going back and forth, though it's fair to say his amateur opponents are probably better than his pro opponents will be, at least for the next year or two.
On the same show in Russia fans will see a lot of interesting action, including Fedor Chusinov Vs Ryno Liebenberg, in what should be a solid Super Middleweight bout, the return of former Russian amateur stand out Mikhail Aloyan, who hasn't fought since late 2019, and the fast rising Khariton Agrba, who takes on former Takashi Uchiyama opponent Jaider Parra.
