This weekend, on May 26th, at Fuzhou China, World Boxing Association (WBA) World Featherweight Champion Can Xu will be defending his title against Shun Kubo. The card will also feature WBA Light Flyweight Champion Carlos Canizales defending his title against Sho Kimura.

This will be Xu’s first defense of the title he won in January when he upset Jesus M Rojas in Houston, Texas, where he scored an unanimous decision to become the first Chinese native to win a WBA title belt.

Kubo, on the other hand, has been a WBA champion in the past at Super Bantamweight. He held that title from April of 2017 until September of 2017 when he lost it to Daniel Roman.

Champion Xu is coming into the fight with a record of 16 wins, 2 losses, and 2 wins via knockout, whereas challenger Kubo will be coming into the fight with a record of 13 wins, 1 loss, and 9 wins via knockout.
