MELINDO READY FOR IBF INTERIM WORLD FLYWEIGHT TITLE FIGHT

By Ronnie Nathanielsz

Stylish ALA Promotions boxer Milan Melindo is fit and ready for his IBF flyweight Interim title fight against Thailand’s Fahlan Sakkreerin in another classic fight card in the widely acclaimed “Pinoy Pride” 39 series at the Cebu Coliseum in Cebu on November 26.

ALA Gym’s head trainer and former world title contender Edito “Ala” Villamor told The Manila Standard that Melindo was in fine shape and had looked good in sparring against promising youngster CJ Cataraja who will also see action on the undercard.

Melindo who is ranked No.6 by the IBF and has a record of 34-2 with 12 knockouts has long wanted a title shot against the No.3 ranked Thai Sakkreerin Jr who has a record of 31-4-1 with 16 knockouts.

Melindo was disappointed that his scheduled rematch with Javier Mendoza of Mexico last May was cancelled when Mendoza backed out due to injury.

Melindo stepped up against another Mexican, Maximo Mendoza and scored a technical decision win in Bacolod City last May.

Even more interesting is the fight of previously unbeaten “Prince” Albert Pagara (26-1,18KOs) who recently lost to Cesar Juarez of Mexico via knockout for the WBO Inter-continental super bantamweight title in San Mateo, California USA last July.

There were those, including this reporter wondered how Juarez who previously engaged five division world super bantamweight champion Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire in a brutal battle came back after being knocked down early in the fight to win by an 8th round knockout.

In fact Juarez is one of the World Boxing Council ranked fighters who has been dropped from the ratings after he failed to sign up for the mandatory random drug test initiated by the WBC in cooperation with VADA, the Volunteer Anti Doping Association headed by Dr. Margaret Goodman.

Prince Albert is determined to recover from that unexpected loss and return to his winning ways while his older brother, Jason “El Niño” Pagara (39-2, 24KOs) who is ranked No. 1 junior welterweight is hoping for an impressive win and a possible title shot down the road.

Also, three of ALA Boxing Gym’s most promising young Leo Santisima, former amateur standout KJ Cataraja, and WBO Oriental Bantamweight champion Jimmy Paypa will also see action in the undercard.
