SANTISIMA FIGHTS INDON ON PINOY PRIDE 40
Sat, 18 Mar 2017
Up-and-coming star Jeo “Santino” Santisima completes the main line-up for Pinoy Pride 40:Donnie-Nation, set at the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino on April 29.
The young Santisima will engage in a 10-round super bantamweight fight against Master Suro (11-8-1) of Indonesia.
Suro is coming off from a win over fellow countryman Jack Madison earlier in February. In both unanimous decisions over impressive performances, he lost to undefeated Tasmanian boxing champ Luke Jackson in 2016, and WBO Oriental lightweight champ Juan Martin Elorde in 2015.
Santisima, on the other hand, has just signed a long-term deal with Philippines’ top boxing promoter, ALA Promotions. After an active 2016 with his debut in the promotions’ flagship program, Pinoy Pride last February, Santisima went on to fight three more times before the end of the year.
In a separate interview, ALA Promotions President/CEO Michael Aldeguer disclosed Santisima “has the power and the heart to become a world champion” and will have a busy year ahead; as he is being groomed towards title fights in the near future.
With a knockout power of 79%, Santisima sports an impressive 12-2-0 record with 11 knockout wins, scoring 10 consecutively in his last 10 fights.
Jeo Santisima (R) throws a right against Rex Wao during Santisima's last outing.
