THE HEAT IS ON FOR 'DUEL IN DUBAI'


PhilBoxing.com




The heat is literally on for the much-awaited "Duel in Dubai II" in "Pinoy Pride 32" at the sprawling International Trade Center in the heart of the United A rab Emirates where temperatures soared to 47 degrees centigrade even before the deadly Pagara brothers, Jason and Prince Albert step into the ring in another edition of the storied Philippine-Mexican rivaly on Friday at 7:00 p.m. Dubai time.

The fight card to be telecast "live" on Sky Cable paym-per-view at 11:00 p.m. and on a delayed basis over Channel 2, the pre-eminent station of the giant broadcast network ABS-CBN as well as ABS-CBN S ports & Action and the widely watched TFC, The Filipino Channel.

Renowmed ALA Gym patron Tony Aldeguer who leaves for Dubai on Tuesday evening told the New Standard/boxingmirror.com that both undefeated IBF Intercontinental super bantamweight champion Prince Albert Pagara and elder brother and light welterweight/super lightweight Jason Pagara were both a mere two pounds over their respective weight limits but its natural and should be no problem especially in the stifling heat.

Pagara is coming off a solid win over Mexico’s Rodolfo Hernandez who was dropped in the opening round and was forced to retire in the 4th round when he complained of a broken hand and was unable to continue while on November 15. 2014 Prince Albert dominated veteran Raul Hirales, a former world champion to win a near shutout decision over twelve rounds with two judges – Ian Scott and Alejandro Lopez Cid scoring the fight 120-107 while Filipino judge Gil Co had Pagara the winner 119-108.

One of the most scintillating performances of Prince Albert Pagara was when he mauled Mexican Hugo Partida in the very first round to score a TKO victory to grab the vacant IBF Intercontinental title after dropping the hapless Hugo "Olimpico" Partida three times in the round.

Prince Albert put on what we referred to as "a royal performance" when he totally annihilated the abrasive and cocky Partida who head-butted and threw a punch at Pagara during the weigh-in, prompting Pagara to vow to destroy the Mexican which he did in awesome fashion the following night.

Pagara dropped Partida early in the opening round before a flurry of punches had the Mexican reeling against the ropes which propped him up and prevented him from going down with the referee correctly ruling a knockdown. While Partida beat the count it was obvious he wouldn’t escape the wrath of Pagara who finished him off with a cracking left hook to the jaw that sent the Mexican crashing to the canvas prompting the referee to
halt the massacre at 1:18 of the opening round.

Prince Albert will battle Mexico’s Jesus “Chito” Rios in the main event while super lightweight Jason Pagara takes on another rugged Mexican Ramiro Alcaraz.

Prince Albert will face the 30 year old Rios who is a ring warrior with a record 25 knockouts in 31 wins with 7 losses and is coming off a 1st round TKO over Aram Valle last May 15.

26 year old Jason Pagara has a record of 35-2 with 22 big knockouts and should have no trouble disposing of Ramiro Alcaraz who has a high KO ratio of 9 knockouts in 15 wins with 4 defeats and 2 draws and is a known slugger whose aggressive style should suit the sweet-punching Jason.

In his last fight on December 20, 2014 Alcaraz scored a 7th round TKO over Jonas Olivas while he lost by a 5th round TKO to Roberto Ortiz in a WBO Silver title fight on April 12, 2014.

Pagara’s most notable victory was in a rematch with menacing-looking Mexican Rosbel Montoya whom he battered to score a 6th round TKO for the WBO International title in a rematch after dropping a ten round decision in their initial encounter.

Jason is coming off a 2nd round TKO in a title defense against Cesar Chavez last February 7 this year.

Aldeguer told us that word from trainer Edmund Villamor in Dubai is that the brothers as well as veteran southpaw Jimrex Jaca are in terrific condition and have vowed to give a predominantly Filipino crowd a night of fireworks in the ring that would thrill them no end.
