DELA TORRE TO FACE EX-OLYMPIAN ON NOV. 18 IN LAS VEGAS
Tue, 14 Nov 2017
FILIPINO boxer Harmonito “Hammer” dela Torre of Sanman Promotions will be facing 2012 London Olympics silver medalist Tugstsogt “King Tug” Nyambayar on November 18 at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
The fight is promoted by the Mayweather promotions.
It will be the third fight in the US for the unbeaten Dela Torre (19-0, 12 KOs).
Dela Torre previously won by a unanimous decision against Mexican Jose Luis Araiza (31-18-2) last November 11, 2016 at the Winna Vegas Casino and Resort.
“I have trained for this fight. I am in great shape. I know he is an Olympic silver medalist and a big puncher but I will come to Las Vegas for a victory,” said the 23-year old Dela Torre.
Dela Torre has trained for a couple of months in Miami, Florida under Cuban coach Moro Fernandez.
“This will be a great fight. Both undefeated boxers going head to head,” said Dela Torre’s manager Jim Claude “JC” Manangquil, chief executive officer of Sanman Promotions.
“We are for a big victory for him (Dela Torre),” said Manangquil.
Nyambayar, however, is also undefeated with eight straight wins all by knockouts.
Nyambayar, who was born in Mongolia, scored a 10th round TKO win against Jhon Gemino during his last fight held February 25 at the Legacy Arena in Birmingham.
As an amateur, he won a silver medal at the 2009 World Amateur Boxing Championships at the age of 17. He went on to win the silver medal at the 2012 London Olympics, losing to Cuban boxer Robeisy Ramirez by a score of 14-17 in the final.
In 2015 he signed with manager/adviser Al-Haymon and made his professional boxing debut on March 2015. He's trained by Hall of Fame boxing coach Joe Goossen at Ten Goose Boxing Gym in Carson, California.
