Ridwhan Looks To Stay Undefeated At Roar Of Singapore 4
Even though he’s considered to be the “Chosen Wan,” Muhammad Ridhwan faces trouble in the form of Jeson Umbal on April 20th.
The undefeated Ridhwan may look effortless in the ring, he packs power, as all but two of his nine professional fights have ended before the scorecards. While Ridhwan may be looking for the knockout, so will his opponent Jeson Umbal, who has won 11 of his 16 victories via knockout.
With the IBO intercontinental featherweight title on the line, both fighters see the other as a stepping stone towards a world title. Umbal, who comes from a family of boxers is confident that he’ll overcome the “Chosen Wan,”
“I know (Ridwhan) is a good boxer, but let’s see what he can show against me in the ring,” Umbal told fighters leading up to the event.
Ridwhan feels that April 20th is a major step in growing not only his value as a fighter, but becoming a unifiying factor in his homeland.
“All I Want is to reach my full potential as a boxer,” Ridwhan said while preparing for Umbal.
“Boxing is growing in Singapore, but I want the sport to grow beyond just the boxing community. I want (Singapore) to have a rich boxing culture, and unite the people of my country through boxing.”
