CEBU CITY, Philippines -- Promising unbeaten Filipino 122-pounder Kevin Jake "KJ" Cataraja (7-0, 6 KO's) affirmed today during ALA Promotions presscon at St Mark's Hotel here in Cebu City that he is ready to battle Indonesian warrior Frengky Rohi as the two boxers are set to collide in a hot 10-rounder this Saturday (June 16) at Tabuelan Astrodome in the Municipality of Tabuelan, 100 Km north of Cebu City.

"I am from Tabuelan in Northern Cebu," said KJ Catajara during presscon. "Fighting there in my hometown for the first time in front of my mother, my whole family and barkada makes me proud. I am not going to disappoint them."

Their 8-rounder promises to thrill fans Saturday night at Tabuelan Astrodome. Christian Bacolod, 23, is trained daily by coach Peter Cuizon at ALA Gym in Talamban, Cebu.
