We've not really have much action to kick off the year but it will be picking up over the next few days. Before we see shows in Japan we do actually get one in India of all places as "Project Solutions" promote a show in Gurgaon. Sadly this isn't a particularly big show, but there is some stuff to discuss from it.
The most notable fighter on the show is 25 year old Shiva (11-3-1, 5) who will be looking to extend a 6 fight unbeaten run as he takes on Manish Harode (1-3-1). This 8 rounder is certainly not a big fight, but it could end up being a lot more competitive than it looks on paper. Shiva might be experienced, but he's not yet proven what he can do, as he continues fighting at a low level, and was held to a draw last time out.
Another 8 rounder on this card will see unbeaten 140lb hopeful Sachin Rohila (3-0, 1) look to build on his promising start to professional boxing as he takes on Sahil Sahil (1-1), who notched a win back in November. It's We're not 100% on why these two are scheduled for an 8 rounder, though it's always interesting to see novices fighting longer bouts and seeing them needing to dig deep in the tank.
Sadly, Shiva aside, there is no one this show with more than a handful of fights, though credit to the promoters for trying to basically build the Indian scene from nothing.
