“MAGIC” MIKE PLANIA WILL MAKE HIS US DEBUT ON MARCH 16
Sat, 24 Feb 2018
UNBEATEN “Magic” Mike Plania of the Philippines will make his debut in the United States on March 16 as he takes on WBO no. 2 Ranked and WBO Latino Bantamweight Champion Daniel “El Alacran” Lozano at the A La Carte Event Pavilion in Tampa, Florida.
Plania is under Sanman Boxing and is now training in Miami, Florida under Cuban coach Moro Fernandez. He is still undefeated with 15 straight wins with seven knockouts.
The 21-year old native of General Santos City previously stopped former Philippine Boxing Federation (PBF) light flyweight champion Jetly Purisima in the 5th round last February 26 at the Lagao Gym in Gensan.
Lozano (15W-4L-0D, 11 KOs), on the other hand, won his last two assignments, which were both championship fights.
He first scored a 2nd round knockout against David Carmona to capture the vacant WBO NABO super bantamweight title last July 28 at the Kissimee Civic Center in Kissimmee.
Lozano then won a unanimous decision against Ricardo Rodriguez (16W-4L-0D) in their battle for the vacant WBO Latino bantamweight title October 13 at the A La Carte Event Pavillion.
The 28-year old Mexican-American is also a former WBO Latino super flyweight and WBC USNBC flyweight champion.
“I am ready to fight Lozano. I know he is a good and strong boxer,” said Plania.
“But I like this kind of fight. I am confident with my skills and this is for my family,” added Plania.
Sanman CEO Jim Claude Manangquil said that Plania has been training hard in Miami.
“He will be 100 percent on the fight. It’s good that he had a tune-up fight last December in Mexico. So ring rust is not a problem,” said Mananquil.
