Cebu boxing fans can get ready for an exciting Fight Night.
Because Cebu's Big Yellow Boxing Promotions stages a thrilling admission-free pro boxing show this Saturday (Feb 23) at the 4-storey Commercial Building The Greenery, located along San Jose de la Monta?a Ave North (Jeepney 03A) here in Cebu City, a 7-bout fight event that can not be missed..!!
In the main feature, Davae?o Big Yellow fighter Clyde Azarcon -- fresh from knocking out tough Ronie Tanallon in seven chapters in Iligan City -- takes on brave warrior Garry Rojo, a man much appreciated by fight fans in his native Bohol.
Appreciated because even after losing 8 of his first 10 fights -- some of them in really rough knock outs -- Garry Rojo (9-12, 5 KO's) never gave up on boxing.
He kept on fighting, no matter what... with one word in mind: persistence.
That's why Garry is today a better fighter, and through the years boxing fans in Bohol have learned to value him, especially sensing that his tough battle against Clyde Azarcon (14-2, 5 KO's) is the most important in his life.
Important not only because Garry Rojo wants to prove that he is a tough 108-pound fighter in Visaya boxing.
But also because for the first time in his life the lion-heart Boholano battles for a title in pro boxing, and that is something.
Yes, Garry Rojo and Clyde Azarcon will wage war on top of the ring for the vacant VISPROBA (Visaya Professional Boxing Association) Light Flyweight Belt, and both men want so bad that strap.
Will Garry Rojo be able to claim belt and pride this Saturday at The Greenery, Cebu City? Or will Azarcon dominate him with superior skills and power?
The two 24-year-old men will rumble in a scheduled 12-rounds battle in the lighting-fast Light Flyweight division; and you have to be there.
