China is preparing to host a great night of boxing next May 26th in Fuzhou. While the date is approaching, World Boxing Association (WBA) Champion Carlos Canizales has arrived on Asian soil this Thursday. Canizales will be defending his belt against the Japanese native Sho Kimura.

“CCC”, as the boxer from Caracas Venezuela is nicknamed, will have considerable time to adapt to the weather and the time zone of China, a situation that is always a difficulty for fighters who go from one continent to another to fight. The champion traveled with all his team, which is lead by his coach Nicolas Hernandez.

The next few days will serve as adaptation to the new region, but also to finish getting in tune and reach 108 pounds, the regulatory weight limit of the division. Canizales won his title in March of last year by beating Reiya Konishi and in July retained his crown for his first defense by defeating Bin Lu by TKO.

For the South American it is not new to visit Asia, since he has fought in Malaysia and Japan and has never lost a fight in that region. The second defense of Canizales will be part of a great evening in which Can Xu will also be defending his featherweight WBA against the Japanese native Shun Kubo.

Canizales comes into the fight with a record of 21 wins, no losses, 1 draw and 17 knockouts. He will face Kimura, who has a record of 18 wins, 2 losses, 2 draws and 11 knockouts.


Castano vs Soro auction will be on May 28th
