?RISE OF THE NEXT CHAMPIONS? ON FEB. 26 IN LAGAO GYM


PhilBoxing.com




GENERAL SANTOS CITY -- The Sanman Promotions is staging its inaugural boxing show for this year on February 26 at the Lagao Gym featuring four championship fights as part of the annual Kalilangan Festival.

?This is still free to the public and it is now included in the calendar of the city,? said young boxing promoter Jim Claude ?JC? Manangquil, Chief Executive Office of the Sanman Promotions.
The boxing card, dubbed as the ?Rise of the Next Champions? was first scheduled at a convention center of one of the malls on Feb. 25.

?(But) we had to change the venue to Lagao Gym because the SM Convention Center could only accommodate around 800 people and that will not be enough,? said Manangquil.

Lagao Gym, which is owned by the city government can accommodate at least 5,000 people.

The boxing card will have four championships including an International Boxing Federation (IBF) World Youth super flyweight title fight. It will start at 5 p.m. following the amateur boxing slated at 1 p.m.

The undefeated Jade Bornea (6 wins, 4 KOs) of the Sanman-Amoy Stable will face Raul ?Vulcan? Yu (9 wins, 1 loss, 2 draws, 8 KOs) of the ALA Stable from Cebu for the vacant IBF World Youth super flyweight title.

The other title fights will feature three new Sanman fighters Eden ?Sanman? Sonsona (35-6-2, 12 KOs), Ben Mananquil (12-1-2, 3 KOs) and Lolito ?Thunder Shot? Sonsona (20-1-4-, 9 KOs).
Eden, a former WBC International Silver super featherweight champion, will face Jovany Rota (9-9-0, 6 KOs) for the World Boxing Federation (WBF).

International super featherweight crown while his elder brother Lolito takes on former WBC Euro Asia Pacific and WBO Asia Pacific flyweight champion Macrea ?The Barb Wire? Gandionco (11-4-2, 7 KOs) for the WBF Asia super flyweight title.
Mananquil, on the other hand, fights former WBO Asia bantamweight champion and now current current MinProba bantamweight champion Glenn ?The Rock? Porras (29-5-0, 17 KOs) for the WBF International bantamweight crown.

The ?Rise of the Next Champions? is sponsored by the city government of Gensan, Mt. Sabrina Resort, Barberlife and Amoy Boxing. ? LOLITO DELOS REYES
