Duno took a break from his training to watch the exciting fights in the birthday boxing presentation of Sen. Manny Pacquiao last Dec. 17 at the Robinson’s Place in Gensan together with Tan, Manangquil and stablemate Reymart “Gensan Assassin” Gaballo.
Romero Duno and his team is preparing for the big stage
After taking some time off, it’s back to serious business for the hard-punching Romeo “Ruthless” Duno, who arrived in Los Angeles, California, USA yesterday.
“Duno will start training at Wildcard Gym next week with Rodel Mayol,” said Sanman Promotions chief finance officer Dexter Tan.
Romero (14W-1L-0D-13KOs) was signed up by Golden Promotions of boxing great Oscar dela Hoya after his sensational second-round knockout win over Christian Gonzalez last March 10 at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles.
“Back to work for Duno and we will be in touch with Golden Boy Promotions. We will announce his next fight very soon,” said Jim Claude “JC” Manangquil, chief executive officer of Sanman Promotions.
After his impressive win over Gonzalez, Duno saw action in a homecoming fight last June 10 that saw him knocking out Jason Tinampay in the second round in the main event of Brawl at the Mall: The Homecoming at the Robinsons Mall Atrium in General Santos City.
“I am happy to be back in the US. I will continue to work hard and will not waste the opportunity that was given to me,” said Duno.
To be honest, I have never heard of Romero Duno until that faithful night when he knockout the undefeated Christian Gonzalez and became the WBC Youth Intercontinental lightweight title last March 10 in Los Angeles, CA. My Facebook timeline was filled with highlights and praises from other boxers and fans and he became an instant boxing superstar in the Philippines.
