Jether, Richie to topbill Aug. 21 card

GENERAL SANTOS CITY – World title hopeful Richie Mepranum and promising knockout artist Jether Oliva will be back in action August 21 against separate opponents, according to JC Boy Mananquil.

Oliva goes up against tough undefeated Paithong Muangsima of Tahiland in non-title bout scheduled for ten rounds at the Lagao Gymnasium here while Mepranum will be up against a still to be named opponent.

Muangsima reportedly holds a perfect 9-0 (win-loss) slate although www.boxrec.com has no record of any professional bout of the Thai boxer.

It will be light-flyweight Olivia’s third fight of the year, coming off two victories against Rogen Flores in February and March.

Oliva is undefeated in 13 professional fights and has knocked out nine of his opponents.

He is managed by JC Mananquil whose outfit, JM Promotions, will also promote the boxing card.

Mepranum, on the other hand, is coming from a long lay-off after a successful debut in the United States where he won against American Cesar Lopez via a six-round unanimous decision in the undercard of the Pacquiao-de la Hoya fight in Las Vegas in December.

A protégé of Maasim Mayor Jojo Lopez, Mepranum is the reigning World Boxing Organization (WBO) Orient champion.

He holds a 21-1-1 record and owns a win over current Philippine flyweight champion Rocky Fuentes

Mepranum will try to shake off an eight-month layoff and hopes to land another big bout abroad.

Also seeing action in the undercard are Randy Petalcurin who will square off against Winie Bartiquil and Janjan Gello-ani who will face Jesus Jimenez.

Froilan Saludar, Erwin Ancajas and Erwin Romasasa will also appear in the undercard. Their opponents will be announced later.

Mepranum was promised another stint in the undercard of pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao but the deal did not push through.

Oliva, who is feared for his wicked body punching prowess, is currently the light flyweight champion of the Mindanao Boxing Federation.
