The Week Ahead: Friday in Australia, up-and-down gatekeeper Joel Casey- who made his name by edging Tim Bell in August, returns to the ring against weak journeyman Kashif Mumtaz, who has been stopped more often than he’s won.


On Saturday, Kenyan gatekeeper Kariz Kariuki battles Randy Griffin in a rare show in China.  Griffin was a serious contender at middleweight, but has been off more than two years since dropping a fairly close decision to Felix Sturm in the summer of 2008.  All in all, this is an interesting matchup.  Also Saturday, prospect Vitali Rusal, whose only loss was a stoppage at cruiserweight to Marco Huck, will fight completely unproven prospect Alexander Cherviak, who is coming off his first career loss to fellow unproven prospect Salambek Baysangurov, in the Ukraine.
