Tso (20W-0L,12KO’s) holds the WBO international and WBC Asia super flyweight titles while Mukai (13W-4L-3D,3KO’s) bears the WBO Asia Pacific super flyweight belt. Tso will be risking his number one world contender ranking while Mukai will be gunning to avenge to loss of his countryman Ryuto Maekawa who lost a unanimous verdict to Tso last October. They will square off Saturday March 11 at the Hong Kong Exhibition and Convention Center.

The supporting main event is a crossroads All-Filipino affair that had boxing pundits in Cebu salivating the moment it was announced. Kenny Demecillo of the Omega Gym of Cebu, known for his crowd pleasing ‘take no prisoners’ fighting style is set for the biggest challenge in his young career when he squares off against former world ranked contender Mark Anthony Geraldo for the WBO Oriental bantamweight title.

Demecillo (12-3-2,7KO’s) is the current WBF Asia-Pacific bantamweight titlist. He owns two TKO wins against a former up and coming prospect Daryl Basadre and a split draw against former IBO world titlist Edrin Dapudong.
