Boom Boom Bautista versus Chris John in 2012?
Posted On Thursday, 15 Dec 2011 By Kenneth Ragpala. Under Boxing, Opinions


Rey “Boom Boom” Bautista (32-2, 24 KOs), who is coming out fresh from a 6th-round knockout win over previously undefeated Miguel Angel Mendoza (17-1, 17 KOs) of Mexico last December 10th, 2011, has been dreaming of becoming a world champion. The reigning IBF international featherweight once fought for a world championship in August 2007 but fell short after getting blitzed by former world champion Daniel Ponce de Leon in the very first round.

Currently perched at the 5th spot by the International Boxing Federation, Bautista’s chances of fighting for a world title will exponentially increase if he fights and wins in an eliminator fight. According to Ray Wheatley, supervisor for the IBF, Bautista might fight for an eliminator within the next 12 months.

One year is a long time and it might take the Filipino slugger around three to four fights before he eventually lands a title match with IBF champion. Although good things happen to those who wait, many boxing observers believed that Bautista has been waiting long enough.

And there is one potential and definitely shorter route to take for Bautista and his team – go up in weight and fight a beltholder in the super featherweight division. That is, if the rumors are true.

According to an inside information relayed to this writer, reigning WBA super featherweight champion Chris John (46-0, 22 KOs) wants to defend his crown in March next year in Singapore. However, John and his team are still looking for possible opponents.


If indeed the information proves to be correct, Bautista might just have the opportunity to position himself in a world title fight. John is a huge name in the super featherweight division and has beaten the likes of Rocky Juarez and Juan Manuel Marquez, although his win over Dinamita is considered to be controversial.

Bautista versus John in March 2012? That could be a potentially good world title fight. But unless the rumors evolve into facts and contracts are signed and sealed, then nothing is certain.

--------------------------------------------------------------
who do you think will win guys?

Chris John beat Juan Manuel Marquez
with a Unanimous Decision in 2006 in their fight in Indonesia

i don't think Boom2x can match the counter-punching style of Chris John
but i'm still rooting for Boom2x to win.

Go Boom2x Pinoy Power! :D

Chris John is a very smart fighter. He knows exactly how to nullify an opponents aggression.
Chris may not have great power in his fist but Boom2 will really eat a lot of leather from him. :lol:

It's just a futile move.

For sure Boom2x will loose to the counterpunching style of John.

Boom2x doesn't even have the lateral movement if John circles around him all night. 8)

This is definitely a big test for Boom2x.

WBA Champion Chris John will be in great advantage of this one due to his ring technical adeptness and experience. This is the same fighter who even outpointed the great JM Marquez for the WBA Featherweight Title on 2006. He has held this prestigious belt since aquiring it in 2003 via SD to Oscar Léon of Colombia.

Boom2 can knock out Chris John. . .
Chris John's been protected in Indonesia since he became a champion. . .

his 2 US fights were boring. . .if the fight's in Singapore, boom2 can KO him!!!

Boom-Boom will have a very difficult time with CJ who has a very good lateral movement...

Boom-Boom style is no match for CJ, he should move his head and develop his lateral movement...

Two things which Boom-Boom cannot develop overtime, so the fight will be a difficult one...
