DAVAO CITY It is now all systems go in the Pinoy Pride XXll: The Revenge set on Oct 26 at the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel in Cebu City.
"The tension is expected to be enormous. There will be war in the ring and boxing fans are excited to witness an absolute memorable match," said Dennis Canete, vice-president of the Asia's Premier Boxing Promotional Outfit ALA Promotions.
Canete said that Pinoy Pride's 22nd installment is set to "create a storm that takes world-class boxing entertainment to a whole new level."
Undefeated ALA stalwart Genesis Azukal Servania (22-0-8 KO's) is facing the fierce Panamanian Rafael El Torito Concepcion for the vacant WBO Inter-continental Super Bantamweight title in the main event.
Victorious after a frenetic brutal slug fest in Macau last July, Servania made his international debut with a technical decision win over Japanese pugilist Konosuke Tomiyama.
El Torito, on the other hand, is notorious among boxing fans for knocking out AJ Bazooka Banal in front of thousands of his stunned countrymen in 2008.
Confident that he will destroy 22-year old Servania, the veteran fighter looks forward to be back in the Philippine boxing arena for the second time.
In 2008, the current WBC Fecarbox Super Flyweight Champion out-slugged the then 18-year-old rising star Banal during the 10th round of the WBA Interim Super Flyweight World Title bout.
The loss was considered one of the biggest upsets in Philippine boxing history, not only for the young Filipino fighter and his camp but for all his countrymen who rooted for him to win the world title belt.
There has been ruckus amongst boxing fans and aficionados on the outcome of the Servania-Concepcion fight.
The Revenge is undoubtedly a compelling sports drama to its highest order.
Will the young ALA stalwart out-slug the fierce Panamanian warrior and avenge fellow stable mate AJ Banal? Or will history repeat itself? Book your tickets today to find out and be part of history as it unfolds.
