April 14th 2013- Indoor Tennis Stadium, Jakarta, Indonesia
Chris John (48-0-2, 22) Vs Satoshi Hosono (23-2, 17)
When it comes to fighters who have split opinion over the last few decades it's fair to say that Chris John is one of the most decisive. For some John was a cherry picking home town hero who never traveled and was happy to hold a title hostage, for others he was a national hero and major sporting star for Indonesia. The truth probably lies between the two views and he did travel, a lot more than people seem to realise, and he also took on numerous tough challenges. One of the toughest was Japanese banger Satoshi Hosono who had twice come up short in previous world title bouts, but was genuinely world class.
