Coliseo Sugar Baby Rojas, Barranquilla, Colombia
There isn't much Asian action this coming Thursdays, but that's not to say there's none at all. In fact there's an Asian in action in Colombia of all places, with Barranquilla hosing an American based Azeri prospect looking for his next win.
The prospect in question here is 28 year old Elvin Gambarov (7-0, 6), who was born in Azerbaijan but has fought his entire career, so far, in the US. Here he's set to make his international debut as he takes on limited Venezuelan Wilman Contreras (9-17-4-1, 6). The talented Gambarov is in need of a step up, and on paper this isn't really it. However Contreras has been in with some decent competition, and has proven to be a banana skin in the past, suggesting he could actually be a test here
