John was recently honoured by Indonesian president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyo with the Bintang Jasa Star medal for outstanding contributions towards John’s native Indonesia, the homeland of 242 Million people.
 
John will also attempt to create history & equal Eseubio Pedroza’s long standing record of 19th WBA World Featherweight title defences.
 
 “With dedication, determination & discipline I will not let my people down and on December 6th Indonesia will rise again” – Chris “The Dragon” John.
 
The event will be broadcast live in Indonesia on RCTI beginning at 9:00pm (Jakarta time)
