World Boxing Organization (WBO) Asia Pacific champion Mig Elorde headlines another blockbuster boxing event tonight when he faces tough and veteran Artid Bamrungauea of Thailand in a scheduled 10-round fight at the Grand ballroom of the Elorde Sports Center in Parañaque.
The young Elorde, rated No. 3 by the WBO, cannot afford to lose this fight as he is being lined up to challenge the newly crowned WBO super bantamweight champion Emmanuel “Vaquero” Navarrete of Mexico.
In the weigh-in at the Games and Amusements Board Office in Makati, yesterday, both Elorde and Bamrungauea tipped the scales at 124 lbs.
Presented by Johnny Elorde Management International in cooperation with Parañaque Mayor Edwin Olivarez and the Rotary Club of Manila Premier, the supporting main event will feature a rematch between undefeated Marlon Paniomogan of the Elorde stable and Jimmy Borbon of the Hardstone Boxing Gym. Their first encounter several years ago saw Paniomogan winning by decision.
