PhilBoxing.com




FUZHOU, China -- WBA Featherweight World Champion Can Xu (徐灿) looked in excellent shape, fit and focused ahead of the first his world crown this coming Sunday, May 26, here in the flourishing City of Fuzhou in Jiangxi Province, southeastern China.

"The Chinese Monster" sweated a few rounds for the media in his public media work out, today Thursday, May 23, doing shadow boxing and mitts with his team made of trainers from France and the Philippines.

Promoted by China's top boxing promoter Liu Gang of Max Power Promotions, Xu Can (16-2, 2 KO's) headlines in his tough mission against heavy-handed Japanese warrior former super bantamweight world champion Shun Kubo (13-1, 9 KO's), a fight destined to become a non-stop action-packed Asian thriller.

The fan-friendly Chinese Monster, a quick, coming-forward fighter who invariable aims at throwing his punches in combinations of three or four, faces stiff competition in the hard-punching Japanese samurai from Kobe, a man wanting to two-division champion of the world.


World Champ Xu Can walks with his Filipino trainer after doing the Mitts.

Will the world champion from the Middle Kingdom Xu Can outbox and control the devastating power of the warrior from the Land of the Rising Sun?

Or will Shun Kubo find his rhythm and the right timing to badly overpower the third boxing world champion born in mainland China... right in his hometown of Fuzhou?
