Cris Ganoza Willing to Capture "The Rattle Snake" Taduran for WBO Oriental Nov 20 in Rizal

CEBU CITY, Philippines -- Cebu-based Leyte warrior Cris Ganoza (R) can't wait to get his boxing gloves on to engage the poisonous hard-striking "Rattle Snake" Pedro Taduran for the vacant WBO 105-Lbs Oriental Belt Monday November 22 in the Municipality of Rodriguez in Rizal Province, 15 Km east of Metro Manila.

The battle is crucial for both Ganoza, 23, and Taduran, 20, as the winner not only claims the shining brand new WBO Oriental Strap, but also acquires a place in the WBO Minumumweight world-ranking, the 105-lbs division where the newly crowned world champion is 22-year-old Ryuya Yamanaka (山中竜也) of Kobe, Japan.

The dangerous "Rattle Snake" Pedro Taduran (11-1, 8 KO's) -- a hard-swinging full-action southpaw who just comes from a rough encounter with fellow Ilocano Philip Luis Cuerdo last May in Tarlac, Northern Luzon -- is called Rattle Snake for a reason as his fights resemble jungle-like rumbles.

However, in his last outing the Rattle Snake was rocked down to the ground in the opening chapter, but the reptilian sprang back up to knock out Cuerdo in round 2. Will a similar jumanji-pace unfold Nov. 20 in Rizal?


Cris Ganoza.

On the other corner, Cris Ganoza (13-1, 7 KO's) also comes from a dramatic round two knock out win, though his combat was one-sided affair as Cris Ganoza mercilessly punished, outpowered and destroyed the unheralded Boholano Garry Rojo, who remained in another dimension for a couple of minutes flat on his back on the canvas of the Sabang Gym in Danao, Cebu.

Now the Big Yellow Boxing Gym fighter sets his sights on ending the venomous "Rattle Snake" Taduran.

"This fight is very important for my boxer Cris Ganoza to get into the WBO ranking. I am training him hard daily. We need to win this. Cris' sparring partner is his friend and stablemate Marjun Pantilgan," said man of boxing Christopher "PingPing" Tepora, 34, the experienced head coach of Cebu's Big Yellow Boxing Gym.


Cris Ganoza Destroys crushes Garry Rojo in two rounds on August 5, 2017 in Danao, Cebu.

To most fight fans, the fight is well-balanced 50-50 match-up, with both southpaw 108-pounders embarking in their most important fight to date.

Will Cris Ganoza venture into the jungle to squeeze the head of Rattle Snake Taduran to claim the WBO Oriental Belt as well as a place in the world-rankings? Or will the strong Rattle Snake eat him alive?

There's a crossroads awaiting for Ganoza and "The Rattle Snake" Taduran as they clash Nov 20. Who will emerge victorious? For boxing fans in the Metro Manila area there is only one way to know.
