SABILLO, DE LA ROSA MAKE WEIGHT IN COLOMBIA!
By Salven L. Lagumbay
09 Mar 2013
The official weigh-in took place moments ago and both Filipino Merlito Sabillo and Colombian opponent Luis de la Rosa easily made weight in advance of their 12-round dukeout tomorrow for the interim WBO minimumweight title at the Coliseo Mario de Leon in Cerete, Colombia.
The winner moves on to challenge reigning champion Moises Fuentes, who figured in a majority draw with WBO jr flyweight king Donnie Nietes in Cebu this weekend, or be declared the regular champion should Fuentes opt to move up in weight.
Sabillo came in at 103.8 lbs, while De la Rosa was at 104.8 lbs, both well below the 105-lb regulatory weight limit for this championship battle.
Sabillo was accompanied at the weigh-in by ALA trainers Edito Villamor and Michael Domingo.
