DALIAN, CHINA – Wuzhati Nuerlang of China and Iddrisa Amadu of Ghana will fight for the vacant WBO Asia Pacific Youth super middleweight title November 18 Saturday at the Barley Sports and Culture Center.
Both boxers easily made weight during the official weigh-in. Wuzhati, who hails from Urumqi, stepped on the scales at 166lbs while Amadu was at 162lbs. The 21 year old Wuzhati (8-1,8KO’s) won the WBO Greater China last June in Jinan against Maimaitijiang Nuermaimaiti, who suffered an elbow injury and had to retire on his stool. Amadu (9-1,9KO’s) will be fighting out of Ghana for the first time.
Mu Xiaolu (8-0-1,3KO’s) and Shidong Cai (5-1-1,2Ko’s0 will dispute the WBO China National junior featherweight title. Both weighed in at 121lbs.
For the undercard matches – female boxers Xu Chunyan vs Guo Lijun – 6 rounds, Yang Jibao vs Avzalbek Kuranbaev of Tajikistan – 6 rounds and Lin Chunlei vs Indonesian Ricky Manufoe – 6 rounds.
The fight between Zeng Yujie and Sandeep Kumar of India has been downgraded to an exhibition after Kumar weighed in 5 lbs over the contracted weight despite efforts to sweat off his excess pounds.
The WBO bouts will be supervised by WBO VP for Asia Pacific Leon Panoncillo. The weigh-in and fights are supervised by the Professional Boxing Commission (PBC) of China.
