Friday the 6th of December, Dragon Fire will present a night of World Championship Boxing action at the Thunderdome, Metro City in Perth Western Australia.
 
The WBA Fighter of the decade & current WBA Super World Featherweight Champion Chris “The Dragon” John (48-0-3) returns to the ring in a battle of Featherweight Champions and will be looking to restore Indonesian national pride as he takes on master boxer & IBO World Featherweight Champion Simpiwe “Vetyeka” (25 – 2)

Vetyeka a 2 division IBO World Champion in the Featherweight & Bantamweight divisions respectively and an 11 year veteran will be looking to upset the 18x time WBA Featherweight Champion.
 
“I have I have won in America , Mexico & stopped Daud Cino Yordan in his backyard (Indonesia) so Australia prepare for another boxing exhibition” – Simpiwe “V12” Vetyeka

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)

Marquez wants a rematch against other boxers he lost to, but not Chris John?
