Magsayo to face Tanzanian veteran Issa Nampepeche on Pinoy Pride 40

PhilBoxing.com




Coming off from an impressive UD win over Mexico’s Ramiro Robles at the Stubhub Center, Carson, CA last September, the undefeated and current WBO International Featherweight Mark Magsayo hopes to make a strong 2017 impression against Tanzanian veteran Issa Nampepeche (24-7-4) in the co-main event of Pinoy Pride 40, headlined by the Nietes-Nantapech IBF world flyweight championship.

Magsayo is set to fight in the main undercard alongside knockout artist Jeo Santisima on April 29 at the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino.

Issa Nampepeche has so far fought for 4 different international titles in the lightfly, super bantam, featherweight, and even lightflyweight divisions, including one world title at 126lbs. The fight with Magsayo is his third outside of his own country.

Magsayo successfully defended his international title twice the past year: first against world title contender Chris “The Hitman” Avalos under the Donaire-Bedak championship in April, and second when he won over Robles in September, who came in to replace Ruben Garcia when the latter suffered an injury from his training.

In an earlier interview, Magsayo disclosed he has been working on improving his skills, citing his experience from Avalos, saying the fight made him realize he still had a lot to learn as a fighter. Magsayo also admitted he needed to work on his defense and focus when inside the ring.

Magsayo currently sports a 15-0 record with 11 knockout wins. He is scheduled for a ten-round featherweight showdown with Nampepeche.
