Chris John In Great Shape

WBA World Featherweight Champion is in great condition two weeks out from his 10th consecutive title defense against former sparring partner Action Jackson Asiku. Craig Christian trainer/manager of Chris John says Chris John has trained very hard for the fight, he has sparred over 150 rounds with Red Hot Prospect William Kickett and is very confident about the result..

Jackson Asiku has a very big chip on his shoulder and a big mouth, look he was never holding back when sparring Chris, that's just bullshit, that's one of the reason we let him go. He is a very jealous man with a big mouth, not a good person really.

Chris John gives him a boxing lesson on the 27th, let's interview him after that and see what other excuses he's got. Talk is cheap and so is Asiku, Chris John will shut his mouth in the ring. I know this talk of Asiku has annoyed him a bit but he doesn't let on much but I know Chris John, he will be at his best come the 27th of July. At his best he would be top 3 Pound for Pound in world far too good for the Ugandan Commonwealth Champion.

Cool Willie Kickett will be on the under card, having come off a great win over Gairy St. Clair. In only his 11 fight compared to St. Clair's 49 fights 40 Wins, 7 losses and 2 draws and previously been beaten by only World Champions.

St. Clair was totally outclassed by the Aboriginal Champion from Western Australia.

The promotion is set for the 27th of July at the Dunia Fantasi Amusement Park, Ancol, in Jakarta, Indonesia and is sure to be a must see event.
