Chris John Will Not Wait, Plans To Fight in Jakarta

By Jhonny Gonzalez

The WBA's featherweight champion in recess, Chris John (44-0-2, 22KOs), will not wait for Yuriorkis Gamboa. In the next few days, John plans to announce the date and opponent for his next fight. He will defend his title for the 14th time in Jakarta, Indonesia. John last fought in December and won an easy unanimous decision over Argentinian boxer Fernando David Saucedo.

Last year the WBA ordered Gamboa and John to fight each other but no agreement has been reached. Gamboa is the "super champion" at featherweight and John is the WBA's "super champion in recess." Gamboa will defend his WBA crown, and the IBF's version, on March 26 against Jorge Solis in Atlantic City.

John is a good fighter, but you're smoking crack if you think he 1. Beat Marquez and 2. The fight was close. Truth is Marquez was robbed and the fight wasnt even close. Fight should have been 8-4 period.
