History in the Philippines: Double Heavyweight Action Aug 3 in Mandaluyong, Metro Manila

By Carlos Costa

Highland Boxing Team aims to excite fans again, this time bringing double heavyweight battle as never seen before in the Philippines. It will all unfold Saturday, August 3, at Barangay Vergara's Covered Court in Mandaluyong City, Metro Manila.

In the main event, tough heavyweight David Koswara (12-15-2, 4 KO's) of Indonesia battles unbeaten hard-hitting Cambodian-American Eric Pen (3-0, 3 KO's) in a rough and mean war full of action.

In his last fight, Eric Pen, 26, claimed the WBA Asia South Heavyweight belt by stopping experienced Satria Antasena in two chapters in a melee last May in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam. The new target is David Koswara, and fans in Mandaluyong are in for the hot ride.



In the co-feature, BIG brawler Miles "The Punisher" Simson (2-0, 1 KO) of Suriname engages in combat Bambang Rusiadi (9-9, 4 KO's) of Indonesia in a high-intensity, tough rumble that might not make the distance. For years, Simson, 27, has been a successful kickboxer with more than 80 pro combats.

Since June of last year Simson has entered in the world of boxing, winning so far. Lets see how "The Punisher" does against the veteran Rusiadi, a man born without fear.



Moreover, the always popular Iloilo-native former WBC Minimumweight Silver Champion Denver "The Excitement" Cuello (37-5-6, 25 KO's) presses forward chapter two of his boxing career by taking on younger Thai fighter former muay thai combatant Detnarong Omkrathok (3-9-1 KO) in a clash that will test Cuello's will and determination.

In his last fight, Cuello, 32, needed less than 6 minutes to stop Indonesian journeyman Jack Amisa (21-46-2, 14 KO's) to clinch the vacant Asian Boxing Federation Bantamweight Belt. The fearless Thai warrior is tougher and younger, and is next in line. Will the Thai scalped too.. Or will it be Cuello the one to get rocked?



In addition, big Indian-Pinoy middleweight warrior "The Punjabi Lion" Prabjoth Singh (7-4-1, 7 KO's) locks horns against fearless Edsil "Toto" Jungco (3-12, 7 KO's) of Iloilo for the Philippines Boxing Federation (PBF) 160 pound title. Who will take the brand new PBF belt home?



In girls action, 20-year-old fighting whirlwind Charimae Salvador (4-2, 1 KO) climbs the ring to take on experienced southpaw Jessebele Pagaduan (11-1-1, 5 KO's) of Benguet Province. It's a battle in the minimumweight women that no fan in Mandaluyong can afford to miss.

Furthermore, Gensan's "Demolition Man" Alie Laurel (15-4-1, 10 KO's) squares off tough Lloyd Jardeliza (8-9-4, 6 KO's) of Mindoro Oriental in a crucial battle in in the featherweight division.



Also, "The Nightmare" Edward Mancito (16-10-2, 9 KO's) of Iligan wages war against brave Zamboangueño Benjie Suganob (10-6-1, 5 KO's) in a exciting battle in the lightweight division.

More clashes are lined-up to thrill fans in attendance.

The entrance is totally free. All fights are sanctioned and supervised by the Games and Amusement Board.

The exciting boxing action Saturday, August 3, at the Covered Court in Barangay Vergara in Mandaluyong, Metro Manila, is a production of promoter Brico Santig, director of the Highland Boxing Team in partnership with young promoter Darwin Miller Angelo Dep-ay of DMAD Boxing Promotions, the Naris Singwancha Foundation, CYDC Promotions, Saigon Sports Club and the government of the City of Mandaluyong. All aboard.

Fights start at 3 PM.

May the best men and women win.
