MACAO, China -- Sanman fighters Richie Mepranum and Adam Diu Abdulhamid successfully made weight for their respective IBF Pan Pacific Saturday night battles set to heat up the ongoing IBF 36th Annual Convention unfolding these days at the plush Wynn Palace Cotai here in "The Vegas of Asia," Macao.

Veteran Sarangani warrior Mepranum (33-7-1, 9 KO's) weighed-in at 122 pounds while the taller and younger Sen Chen 陈森 (11-1, 2 KO's) of Jining, China, made 120 lbs ahead of their 10-rounder rumble for the IBF Pan Pacific Super Bantamweight Belt.


Adam Diu Abdulhamid (L) of Gensan rumbles The Timorese Terror Steve Gago.

Also, Sanman welterweight Adam Diu Abdulhamid (14-7, 6 KO's) of Gensan scaled-in at 147 pounds, and later his tough undefeated Australian opponent "The Timorese Terror" Steve Gago (11-0, 4 KO's) of Perth got 145.3 lbs ahead of their ten-chapter war for the red and golden IBF Pan Pacific Welterweight Strap.


Unbeaten 175 pounders German fighter Adam Deines (L) against Chinese 2012 Olympian Fanlong Meng.

Moreover, in an exciting IBF world title eliminator, unbeaten Light Heavyweight German fighter Adam Deines (17-0-1, 8 KO's) came-in at the limit of the division, 175 pounds, while undefeated Chinese 2012 Olympian Fanlong Meng (14-0, 9 KO's) recorded 174 lbs. The two southpaw gladiators collide for the right to battle for the IBF Light Heavyweight World title.

The reigning IBF 175-pound world champion is fearsome unbeaten Russian destroyer Artur Beterbiev (14-0, 14 KO's). IBF President Daryl Peoples will supervise the battle.


Debutant Xinlong Bai (L) battles Hon Lek Ao (trained by Filipino coach).

Plus, Macao fighter Hon Lek Ao (1-0, 1 KO) trained by Filipino coach and pro boxing debutant Xinlong Bai of China collide in a 4-rounder that promises total action. Both men weighed-in at the limit of the featherweight division, 126 pounds.

Tsuyoshi Yasokuchi of Japan is one of the supervisors. Ring official Ignatius Missailidis of Australia is also on duty.

Filipino Arnie Najera has been assigned as ringside judge in two of the fights.

May the best men win.
