Current WBA World Featherweight Champion Chris “The Dragon” John has been honored by Indonesian president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono at the Mandala Krida Stadium in Jakarta Indonesia.
The WBA Fighter of the Decade, who is still unbeaten (48-0-3, 22 KO’s) with 18 world title defences, was presented with the Bintang Jasa Star Medal, for outstanding contributions towards Indonesia, the homeland of 242 million people.
“I do everything for Indonesia, it is honour to represent my people and the World Boxing Association and make them proud,” John said
This further cements Chris John’s status as the Indonesian people’s champion and a national icon.
