Dela Torre hits Malaysia, all set for showdown with unbeaten foe
Thu, 12 Jul 2018
ARMED with the needed preparation and tremendous will to win, Harmonito "Hammer" Dela Torre has arrived in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for an all-important fight on Sunday.
Dela Torres is accompanied in Kuala Lumpur by coaches Rodel Mayol and Marquil Salvana.
Also with the team to lend support are Sanman Promotions CEO Jim Claude Manangquil and Sanman Promotions CFO Dexter Tan.
Dela Torre (19w-1L-0D, 12KOs) will be fighting unbeaten Chinese fighter Yongqiang Yang in the undercard of the Manny Pacquiao-Lucas Matthysse duel in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Dela Torre assured he is in tip-top shape against Yang, who is unbeaten in 10 fights with seven knockout victories.
"It's been a good camp. We have a good gameplan and I can't wait for the big day on Sunday," said Dela Torre.
Dela Torre is aware of the significance of the fight, hence, fight fans can expect him to go all out.
"This could bring me back to title contention if I win," said Dela Torre, who is aspiring to bounce back after absorbing his first career-loss to Mongolian Tugstsogt Nyambayar last November 18, 2017 in Las Vegas, USA.
It will be the second time in his career that Dela Torre will be fighting in a card headlining Pacquiao.
Dela Torre fought in the undercard of the Pacquiao-Brandon Rios duel last November 2013 wherein the Sanman Boxing Gym stalwart pulled off a third-round knockout win over Indonesia’s Jason Butar Butar.
