WBO Asia Pacific Bantamweight Champion Ben Mananquil (W17 KO4 L1 D3) will make his first title defense against Japanese challenger Yuki Kobayashi (W14 KO8 L8 D0) in Osaka, Japan on May 26, 2019.
Mananquil claimed the WBO Title after beating another Japanese Tenta Kiyose last February. The Filipino prospect have been training for more than a month now. “My training camp is intense. I shall be 100% ready by May 26. I am very positive that I will bring back the belt home. I have won the title on the road. I have no problem making my defense in the opponent’s turf. I am determined to remain champion and am aiming at a world title shot.”
For Sanman CFO Dexter Tan, “Ben is a road warrior and has no problem winning against opponents with home advantage. He needs this win and hopefully gun for the world title.”
