The Jakarta Post reports that the once-delayed title fight between Indonesian WBA world featherweight champion Chris John and Argentinean fighter Fernando David Saucedo will not be held in Bali as initially announced, but, instead, be moved to the Indonesian capital of Jakarta.
Initially slated to be fought on Kuta Beach on May 22nd but postponed due to a practice injury suffered by Chris John, the rescheduled bout will now happen in the third week of July 2010.
The contest is being promoted by Indonesian fight promoter Zaenal Thayeb who has reportedly negotiated broadcast rights with the Indonesian television network RCTI.
Press reports say the Indonesian fighter wished the fight to take place in mid-June to mid-July, but Indonesian television sports programmers prefer the late July date to avoid any time clash with World Cup broadcasts from South Africa.
