MANANQUIL EXCITED TO FIGHT PORRAS ON FEB. 26

GENERAL SANTOS CITY --- Brawler Ben Mananquil, one of the newest boxers of the Sanman Promotions is now excited to face former WBO Asia Pacific Youth bantamweight champion Glenn “The Rock" Porras in their championship fight on February 26 at the Lagao Gym in General Santos City.

"I’m now very excited. I love to fight and Porras wants to fight too. So this will be a war," said Mananquil.

Mananquil (12 wins-1 loss-2 draw-3 KOs) and Porras (29-5-0-17 KOs) are fighting for the vacant World Boxing Federation (WBF) International bantamweight title in the Sanman’s inaugural boxing show for 2017 billed as the “Rise of the Next Champions".

Promoter Jim Claude Manangquil, Chief Executive Officer of Sanman Promotions thinks that match could be the Best Fight of the Night since both fighters are known to fight toe to toe.
Ben Mananquil, a native of Zamboanga del Norte had a controversial technical draw with unbeaten Kwanpichit Onesongchai Gym in Thailand.

He also had a split draw with China's Jing Xiang in China. Mananquil, however, won his previous fight via a unanimous decision over Bukidnon’s Romulo “Demon” Ramayan Jr. last Dec. 4 at the Robinson’s mall atrium in GenSan.

Porras, on the other hand, is a former WBO Asia Pacific Youth bantamweight champion.

He temporarily gave up boxing after losing by a 2nd round knockout to Mexican Jose Nieves in their WBO Latino bantamweight championship held Dec. 7, 2012 in Florida, USA.

But the 31-year old Porras successfully made a comeback last year by beating Renante Suacasa by a unanimous decision to win the vacant Minproba bantamweight crown in President Roxas Gym, North Cotabato.

Porras, who is now handled by the Singapore-based MB Promotions said he will come 100 ready and will look to stop Ben Mananquil.
Porras won his first two fights in the US in 2011 and 2012 all by UDs. He first beat Adolfo Landeros on Dec. 2, 2011 at the Chumash Casino in Santa Ynez, California then crushed Jose Silveria on Aug. 10, 2012 at the Morongo Casino Resort and Spa in Cabazon, California.

The Mananquil-Porras title fight is one of the four championship bouts featured in the official boxing event of this year’s Kalilangan Festival.

It is sponsored by the city government of Gensan, Mt. Sabrina Resort, Barberlife and Amoy Promotions. It will be covered by Solar Sports. Admission is free to the public.

The other championships will have Jade Bornea (6-0-0-4 KOs) against Raul “Vulcan” Yu (9-1-2-8 KOs) for the vacant IBF World Youth super flyweight, Eden “Sanman”Sonsona (35-6-2-12 KOs) agains Jovany Rota (9-9-0-6 KOs) for the WBF International super featherweight and Lolito “Thunder Shot” Sonsona (20-1-4-9 KOs) and former Philippine light flyweight champion Renren Tesorio (15-9-3-4 KOs) for the WBF Asia super flyweight crown.
