Xu Can Defends His WBA Title Against Shun Kubo On May 26th


Xu Can will defend his WBA “regular” featherweight world strap against former world title challenger Shun Kubo of Kobe, Japan on May 26 in the historic “Good Luck” Chinese Coastal City of Fuzhou in Southeast China.

The announcement was made by Promoter Liu Gang during a press conference in China attended by the two fighters, an event organized by Max Power Promotions.

“Yes indeed, an intriguing battle. Our world champion Xu Can defend against Japanese striker Shun Kubo (13-1, 9 KO’s) here in China,” assures veteran man of boxing Liu Gang, China’s top promoter. 

“In addition, WBA world champion Cañizales will defend against former world champ Sho Kimura. You should remember that Sho Kimura was the man who terrorized and ended the career of former Top Rank’s Golden Cow Zou Shiming before? Will Sho Kimura stop Cañizales too? I think May 26 will give fans an exciting show of good boxing,”
