Chris John to Defend WBA Super Featherweight World Title Against Satoshi Hosono in Jakarta

Chris John will make the sixth defence of his WBA Super Featherweight World Title against Satoshi Hosono in Indonesia on April 14th. The event will be taking place at the Senayan Indoor Tennis Stadium in Jakarta and will also feature Indonesian Daud Yordan defending his IBO Featherweight Title against South Africa's Simpiwe Vetyeka.

This will be the first time John (48-0-2) has fought in Indonesia in two years. Hosono (23-2) has fought for world titles twice before but come up short on both occasions with the Japanese boxer defeated by Celestino Caballero in 2011 and Poonsawat Kratindaenggym in 2010.

Yordan (30-2) will be making the second defence of the IBO belt which he won by stopping Lorenzo Villanueva in Singapore last year when he goes up against Vetyeka (24-2) who has won a couple of international titles in the past and fought for a world title once before in 2007, losing a decision to Hozumi Hasegawa.

The show is being put on by Australia's Dragon Fire Promotions.

[QUOTE=WeltshmerzKO]Good points, and yea i enjoyed the Pripyano fight as well, was expecting John to show his age since he has been in some serious wars but the guy still has quite the motor and outworked the Thai. But honestly who of the big American or European names have called out John lately...

[QUOTE=crold1]His numbers are inflated, but he's had some solid foes. His last opponent, the Thai, had an inflated record but he can fight and it was a good scrap. Enoki, Yordan, & Juarez were all solid challengers. Kimura was a former titlist who had a good comeback win before taking on John....

[QUOTE=WeltshmerzKO]He does tend to fight a lot of bums but he beat marquez, i've watched a few of his fights and he's a pretty good boxer who always entertains. As for being a "paper champ", i agree but look at American boxing.....same **** different continent.[/QUOTE] His numbers are inflate...
