- Updated: 06/07/2010
WBA super world featherweight champion Chris “The Dragon ” John (43-0, 22 KOs) will be in action on July 26 in Jakarta, Indonesia when he defends the championship against South American featherweight champion Fernando “El Vasco” Saucedo (38-4-3, 1 KO) of Argentina over twelve rounds. John is in solid training under the expert guidance of Craig Christian who talked to Fightnews. “CJ is in great shape three weeks out from fight. He seems to be very hungry. I cannot fault his attitude or his endeavor. I believe CJ is boxing better than ever before he is really having fun trying new things and is really sitting down on his punches. After this (with Saucedo) we want to fight any of the other champs: Gamboa, anyone except for Billy Dib, we are terrified of him. He will never get a shot.” In his last ring appearance Chris John defended the championship in September 2009 with clear twelve round points decision over Rocky Juarez at the MGM Grand Casino in Las Vegas.
