It was only July 29th that Hanoi boxer Nguyễn Khắc Dũng fought at VSP PRO, and plans were for the strongly built Lightweight to return to the ring in maybe 2 to 3 months.
But a late withdrawal of the opponent of Binh Duong team's Truong Hai Bien this Saturday created an immediate chance to fight that Dũng simply could not refuse.
And as they say, fortune favours the brave !
Dũng debuted at just one week's notice against one of Saigon's most promising boxers - former youth champ Phan Minh Quân. He returned last month in vastly improved shape, but met an equally improved rival in Tran Tan Quang Dao.
The Hanoi boxer showed great sturdiness under pressure, because Dao arguably put on the best boxing performance of the night.
Courtesy of his improvement, the match up between Nguyễn Khắc Dũng and southpaw Truong Hai Bien shapes as one of the most interesting this Saturday night.
Bien is on debut, but has an extensive kickboxing and muay thai background, and the reports from Binh Duong are that he will be well suited to the professional boxing arena.
This fight has been elevated to the main undercard, and be in no doubt that these two hard headed warriors will do it justice !
