ABDULHAMID TO FACE EX-IBF PAN PACIFIC CHAMP IK YANG IN CHINA NOV. 2

PhilBoxing.com



Abdulhamid (L) and Ik Yang (R).

PROMISING Adam Diu “Big Daddy” Abdulhamid of General Santos City is facing another tough opponent as he fights former IBF Pan Pacific super lightweight and WBO Asia Pacific lightweight champion Ik “Wild Man” Yang of China on November 2 in Chongquing.

“The fight is scheduled for 8 rounds in the junior welterweight division,” said Sanman Promotions Chief Executive Officer Jim Claude “JC” Manangquil.

Adbulhamid (11W-4L-0D, 4 KOs), who fights for the Sanman Boxing Gym will be going to China together with chief trainer Romeo “Dodong” Desabille.

“Adam is ready and excited for the big opportunity ahead of him,” said Manangquil.

The 22-year old Abdulhamil is currently training very hard at the Sanman Boxing Gym for his only second fight for this year.
“He is now in great shape,” Manangquil said.

Abdulhamid is coming off from a unanimous decision loss to the undefeated Thai Apinan Kongsong (9-0) held August 23 in Bangkok.
“Adam lost his last fight in Thailand but his performance was really good,” Manangqul said.

Abdulhamid scored two straight wins before he went to Bangkok.
He first beat Marjhun Tabamo by a unanimous decision in Iligan City then won by a split decision against Raymond Yanong last Dec. 17 at the Robinson’s Place in Gensan.

“I’m very excited and I will do my best to make an upset against Ik Yang,” said Abdulhamid.

He also fought for the vacant WBO Youth super lightweight title but lost to Georgi Chelokhsaev by a first round technical knockout due to injury in 2016 at the Sport Service in Podolsk, Russia.

Ik Yang (19W-2L-0D, 14KOs), on the other hand, has been inactive since he suffered a 6th round TKO loss to Leonardo Zappavigna last July 23, 2106 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

It was Yang’s second straight loss after dropping a UD to Cesar Rene Cuenca in their battle for the vacant IBF World super lightweight title last July 18, 2015 in Macao.

Yang bounced back from a first round knockdown to also send down Cuenca in the 5th round. But Yang was deducted in the 12th round.

Yang won the vacant IBF Pan Pacific super lightweight title by stopping Surasak Makordae in the 5th round on Dec. 16, 2014 in Shaghai. He retained it via a 6th round TKO over Komsan Polsan on March 7, 2015 at the Cotai Arena in Venetian Resort, Macao.
Yang also earlier captured the vacant WBO Asia Pacific lightweight crown with an 8th round TKO win against Sukpraserd Ponpitak in 2014 in Shanghai.

“I think Adam has a big chance against Ik Yang who has not fought more than a year already,” said Manangquil.
