The boxer from the Fuzhou, Jiangxi province, has been out of the ring since retaining the WBA's World featherweight championship by winning a unanimous decision over Manny Robles in November 2019.
Xu (18-2, 3 KOs) has been waiting for a long time to get in the ring with International Boxing Federation (IBF) featherweight champion Josh Warrington (30-0, 7 KOs) and with the recent covid issues in the UK it doesn't look like happening anytime soon
"I'm tired of waiting; I want to be a fighting champion. Many professional fighters I know have retired and become coaches because there is really no competition during these times. Some even changed careers and got other jobs. But I have to fight. It's my job. After all, I have waited for a year for the chance to face Warrington. My next goal is a unification war."
One fighter offering his services to the impatient Xu Can is WBA and IBF World rated Bruno "The Termintor" Tarimo 25-2
Tarimo, The Australian based Tanzanian is the chief sparring partner of Australia's greatest export The Fighting Moloney Twins Andrew and Jason.
Bruno discussed a potential WBA World Featherweight Clash with Can.
"Xu Can, I know your frustration I went over 1 year before my last fight. If there is no Warrington, I'm ready to fight you in Australia, In China, or if your lounge room. For me it's anyone, anywhere, anytime.
I would do anything to fight for the World title. I live in Australia, because of the pandemic I have not seen my wife or kids in over a year and I know with this World Championship opportunity it will change my families life.
Xu Can you throw a million punches, but you cannot stop the Terminator. My mission is to get the World title and I will not stop until I get my World Championship. Any one that gets in my way, Hasta La Vista baby!"
Should there be no Warrington fight in the immediate future, no doubt Can v Tarimo would deliver a fight of the year candidate.
