Indonesia Ready for Nov 17 IBA World Title Double-Header

Indonesian boxing fans just can't wait for the coming televised fight card, featuring two IBA world title fights set to ignite fireworks Sunday, November 17, in the City of Batu in East Java, Indonesia.

Indonesian boxers set to battle foreign warriors for world title glory.

In the main event, Indonesian boxing star former two-division IBO world champion Daud "Cino" Yordan (39-4, 27 KO's) clashes against tough South African southpaw Michael Mokoena (14-4, 10 KO's) for the vacant International Boxing Association (IBA) World 140-pound belt.

The battle, which might not make distance, is also valid for the vacant WBO Oriental strap.

Will "Cino" Yourdan became a three-division titlist? Or will the South African former Gauteng Junior Welterweight champ be the one to emerge victorious?

In the evening's co-feature, experienced Filipino former Philippine Boxing Federation (PBF) belt-holder Marco Demecillo (24-8-1, 19 KO's) of Iligan City battles undefeated heavy-handed Indonesian rising-star Ongen "Hawk" Saknosiwi (7-0, 7 KO's) for the vacant IBA Featherweight World Title.

Will the more experienced Demecillo, who hails from a large boxing family, be able to control with superior boxing skills and ring smarts the furious knockout-seeking attacks from the Hawk Saknosowi, the younger Indonesian warrior in aiming at scoring his eight knockout win in a row?
