Duno and Dhanda during Friday's weighin.

MANILA, Philippines -- WBA Interim Bantamweight Champion Reymart Gaballo (20-0, 17 KO's) of General Santos City scaled-in at 118.5 lbs while Japanese warrior Yuya Nakamura (9-2-1, 7 KO's) came one half pound heavier at 119 pounds for their non-title 10-round clash tomorrow Saturday (Feb 9) here at the Midas Hotel & Casino in Metro Manila, both fighters looking in excellent shape ahead of their main event rumble.

The undefeated Gaballo, 22, managed by WBC Asian award-winning promoter JC Manangquil of Sanman Boxing, comes from a quick round one demolition of African boxer Julias Kisarawe last September in Manila; while Nakamura, 28, lands-in from a hard-fought majority draw last December in China, and who will prevail?

DUNO VS DHANDA FOR WBA ASIA 135 LBS STRAP

In the televised co-main feature, Sanman star "Ruthless" Romero Duno (18-1, 14 KO's) weighed-in at 134 pounds for his collision against Indian warrior, two-times Amateur National Champion Kuldeep Dhanda (7-1, 1 KO) in a battle for the vacant WBA Asia Lightweight crown.

Smart tactician Kuldeep Dhanda -- whose trainer Roshan Nathanial is a winner the prestigious India's Bharat Shree Award -- was right on the money scaling-in without difficulty the limit of the light weight division, 135 pounds.

The war's winner will claim the coveted shining WBA Asia champion belt, plus a place in the WBA world-rankings. The 23 year-old Duno is back in his native Philippines after a series of wins in California. Will he keep his success rolling hot? Or will Dhanda stop him?

MORE EXCITING SATURDAY NIGHT FIGHTS IN MANILA, PHILIPPINES

Also in an intriguing, well-matched collision between young Cotabato boxers, the "Doberman" Dave Apolinario (9-0, 6 KO's) of the Sanman Stable came-in at 111.5 lbs., while "The Hammer" Romshane Sarguilla (7-1-2, 4 KO's) made 112.5 pounds for their 8-chapter saga in the flyweight division. Both fighters come from impressive wins, and want more.


R. Sarguilla 112.5 (L) battles Dave Apolinario 111.5 in a 8 round non stop action war.

Also, unbeaten Presco "Carjun" Carcosia (4-0, 4 KO's) of General Santos City recorded 126 lbs., as his opponent, 7-year-veteran the "Amazing" Renerio Arizala (13-8-2, 5 KO's) of Bacoor, Cavite stepped-in at 127 pounds for their action 8-rounder. Will the young gun overpower the more-experienced warrior.. or will it be the other way around?

In addition, unbeaten "Iron Fist" Jerven Mama (8-0-1, 5 KO's) of General Santos City, a young gladiator of the Sanman Stable, tipped the GAB scale at 112.5 pounds while tough-as-nails 23 year-old Mervin Lulu (5-4-2, 2 KO's) of the Municipality of Bagumbayan in Sultan Kudarat came in one pound heavier at 113.5 lbs. Their 6-rounder rumble that might not make it the distance.

In another exciting clash, unbeaten Sanman fighter Rolando "Momoy" Servania (7-0, 3 KO's), brother of world-ranked featherweight Genesis Servania stepped-in at 122 pounds while his southpaw foe Arnel Caoctoy (6-6-1, 2 KO's) of the seaside city of Ormoc in western Leyte came-in two pounds heavier at 124 lbs. Caoctoy was given time to shed those extra pounds as their six-stanza battle at a contracted weight of 122 lbs. After some sweating, Caoctoy reduced one pound, being his official weight 123 lbs.

The official weigh-in ceremony was supervised by Games & Amusement Board (GAB) Chairman Baham Mitra with the assistance of GAB Boxing Chief Dioscoro B. Bautista and GAB officials Rafael "Ralph" Dyoknos, Eduardo Coronel and Jan Keener So.
