BRAWL AT THE MALL: UNDEFEATED ?Magic? Mike to put magic vs. Rosas


PhilBoxing.com




DAVAO CITY (PNA) --- Undefeated ?Magic? Mike Plania of General Santos City aims to put his "magic" to continue his winning form against fellow unbeaten Lorence Rosas of Samar in their championship fight for the vacant World Boxing Federation (WBF) International bantamweight title on April 30 in the main event of the Brawl at the Mall: Undefeated at the Makati Square Cinema in Makati City.

?And if there is an opportunity to knock him out, I will do it,? said Plania, who previously scored a unanimous decision against veteran Rogen Flores last March 8 in T?boli, South Cotabato.
Plania, who has 9 straight wins with four knockouts and no loss or draw, already saw a video of his opponent?s previous fights.
?He is a good boxer and fast. But I will try my best to stay unbeaten against an undefeated southpaw,? said the 19-year old Plania.

Plania earned his moniker ?Magic? because of his fighting style.

?Mike fights like a magician, now you him, now you don?t,? said Manangquil.

Plania, who thinks that boxing is ?to hit and not to get hit? said that he is already 70 percent in condition.

He had a couple of eight rounds of sparring at the Sanman Gym in General Santos City.

?There are still 25 days more to prepare for this fight,? said trainer Renie Gabawa.

Plania has been sparring against stablemate Rimar Metuda, who is also a southpaw.

Plania, whose ring idols are Floyd Mayweather and Guillermo Rigondeaux, also dreams of becoming a world champion someday.
Plania is a former member of the Philippine national team. He represented the country in the 2014 AIBA World Youth Championships held in Ukraine and made it into the quarterfinals.
He is a three-time gold medalist in the Palarong Pambansa and 7-time champion in the National Games.

?I want to thank my family for their support. I also thank my managers in Sanman Promotions for giving me this opportunity,? said Plania, who was referring to Jim Claude Manangquil, Dexter ?Wang Yu? Tan, Vic dela Cruz and John Ray Manangquil.

The Plania-Rosas championship fight for the vacant World Boxing Federation (WBF) International bantamweight title will be the inaugural boxing show of Sanman Promotions in Manila.

Plania also made his pro debut at the Makati Square Cinema on August 22, 2014 by scoring also a UD against Lordy Pateno. ? LITO DELOS REYES
