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.
Ben Mananquil had been wanting to turn doubters into believers and did just that Saturday night when he gutted out a majority decision win over the hard-fighting Jess Rhey Waminal in the main event of the “Road Stardom” fight card at the overflowing Polomolok Gymnasium in Polomolok, South Cotabato.
TEN undercard fights will spice up the much-anticipated “Road to Stardom” fight card.
FIGHTING in enemy’s territory has always been a tough task but Adam Diu Abdulhamid of the Sanman Boxing Gym is unfazed of his upcoming fight abroad as he battles an unbeaten Thailander opponent on August 23 in Bangkok Thailand.
Abdulhamid will trade leathers with the unbeaten Downua Ruawakiking for the IBF Asia superlightweight title.
“I am not bothered on being on the road. Once the bell rings, it’s just me and him,” said Abdulhamid, who has 11 wins (4KOs) and three losses.
Abdulhamid is on a two-fight winning streak and has won nine of his last 10 fights.
“This is going to be a good fight and we are confident of Diu’s chances to score a big win,” said Jim Claude “JC” Manangquil, chief executive officer of the Sanman Promotions.
Ruawaiking will be putting his unbeaten slate on the line as he is yet to lose in nine fights with seven of those wins coming by way of knockouts.
Manangquil said the upcoming card will be promoted by Jimmy Chaichotchuang of Kiatkreerin Promotions.
