BOXING REVOLUTION 4: Demecillo to defend WBF crown vs. ex-world champ Dapudong


PhilBoxing.com




REIGNING World Boxing Federation (WBF) Asia bantamweight champion Kenny “Singwangcha” Demecillo of Cebu will defend his crown against former International Boxing Organization (IBO) world super flyweight champion Edrin “The Sting” Demecillo of North Cotabato on December 22 at the Almendras gym in Davao City.

The title-fight is the main event in the fourth edition of Boxing Revolution billed as “The Road to the WBF Championship”, which is under the Sonshine Sports Management Inc. (SSMI).

It will be Demecillo’s first title-defense of the vacant crown he won by an 8th round technical knockout against arch-rival Darryl Basadre last Sept. 26 at the Gaisano Mall in General Santos City.

Demecillo, who was knocked down once in the second round, came back strong for a TKO victory in 2:45 of the 8th round.

Demecillo (10-3-1) of the Omega Boxing Club had also earlier stopped Basadre in 2:54 of the 2nd round to capture the vacant World Boxing Association (WBA) Oceania bantamweight title last June 7 at the Robinsons Mall in Gensan.

“Talagang magaling at matibay si Demecillo. But we accepted the challenge,” said Boxing Revolution Series executive producer Hermenegildo “Jun” Cardona during yesterday’s press launching held at the second floor of the Abreeza Ayala Mall.

Dapudong, who has 31 wins, 6 loss and no draw, however, is confident that he can beat Demecillo.

‘Kabalo ko na maayo pud siya na boxer. Pero paningkamutan ko lang tanan,” said Dapudong, a two-time world super flyweight champion, who will only be making his third fight in the 118 division.

The 29-year old native of M’lang, North Cotabato has won his last two fights both in the 118 lbs. division. Dapudong first TKO’d Wisanlek Sithsaithong of Thailand in the 5th round last October 11, 2011 at the Almendras gym during the Boxing Revolution 2.

Dapudong then scored a 2nd round knockout against Richard Garcia in Boxing Revolution 3 held June 26 at the same venue.

“We are very proud to present the fourth installment of the boxing series that aims to produce boxing champions and institutionalize the local boxing scene,” said Cardona.

Cardona said that Boxing Revolution 4 is different from the past three promotions since this time the boxers from SSMI are now the challengers.

“They will be fighting against reigning champions or better ranked fighters,’ Cardona said.

Also present at the launching were Sonshine Media head Richard Reyes and boxing consultant Jaime Mata.

Boxing Revolution 4 will also feature two main supporting bouts and eight other professional matches in the undercard.

Former WBO Oriental featherweight champion Lorenzo “Thunderbolt” Villanueva (21-1-0) will take on Jerry Castroverde (6-2-0) also of the Omega Boxing Club from Cebu in a 129 lbs. 10 rounder bout while former WBO Oriental minimumweight champion Rommel “Little Assasin” Asenjo (27-4-0) will face Manila-based Bonjon Louperez (9-4-1) for a 10-rounder 106 lbs. fight.

The exciting event is now open free to the boxing fans. However, SSMI will still be donating a certain amount to the Gift of Education scholarship program of the Jose Maria College. – LITO DELOS REYES
