WBA Fighter of the Decade Chris “The Dragon” John (48-0-3, 22 KOs) has been honoured by Indonesian president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono at the Mandala Krida Stadium in Jakarta Indonesia.

John, the current WBA World Featherweight Champion, still undefeated and with 18 World Title defences was presented with the Bintang Jasa Star Medal, for outstanding contributions towards John’s native Indonesia, the homeland of 242 million people.

This further cements John’s status as the Indonesian people’s champion and a national icon.

“I do everything for Indonesia, it is honour to represent my people and the World Boxing Association and make them proud” John said

    For 18 years, Fightnews.com® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.
