Johnson vs Farah in epic GBO Heavyweights Battle this Saturday, June 15, in "Thrilla in Davao"


PhilBoxing.com





American heavyweight former WBC United States (USNBC) champion Ronald "The American Dream" Johnson (15-1, 4 KO's) is already in Davao ready to lock horns against Bolivian warrior former WBC interim South American Heavyweight titlist "The Phoenix Assassin" Saul Farah (69-23-3, 60 KO's) for the vacant Global Boxing Organization (GBO) heavyweight title this Saturday, June 15, at The Enderun Tent, Azuela Cove in "The Crown Jewel of Mindanao," The City of Davao, Philippines.


This is a clash of titans that no boxing fan in Davao can afford to miss. Will "The American Dream" Ronald Johnson be able to overcome ring rust to successfully deal with the more experienced, more active "Phoenix Assassin to claim the GBO heavyweight title in "Thrilla in Davao?"

Or will the Assassin Saul Farah send Ronald Johnson back to the U.S. bruised and beaten up?

The card's name "Thrilla in Davao" evokes and honors the original 1975 "Thrilla in Manila," the unforgettable, iconic, historic battle between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier for the undisputed heavyweight world title.

EXCITING GBO TITLE FIGHTS

In the show's co-main event, unbeaten Ifugao bantamweight Roy Nagulman (8-0-1, 6 KO's) collides against more experienced tough Davaeño Aries Buenavidez (12-3, 7 KO's) for the vacant GBO Asia Pacific Bantamweight strap.


Roy Nagulman (8-0, 6 KO's) bantamweight from Ifugao.

It will be the first time that the hard-hitting 17-year-old Roy Nagulman fights a boxer who punches as hard as Buenavidez, 23, does. Will this title fight make it the distance? Fans in Davao are so eager to see how Roy performs under heavy fire.

In another GBO title clash, another unbeaten Ifugao prospect Khurvin Jhon "KJ" Natuplag (8-0-2, 7 KO's) climbs the ring to trade bombs against confusing southpaw Joe Tejones (12-6-7 KO's) of Valencia City, Bukidnon, for the Global Boxing Organization (GBO) Super Featherweight (130-pound) Strap.

Let's find out if the young unbeaten heavy-puncher KJ Natuplag is able to push forward his young boxing career. For "KJ," a defensive mistake against Tejones, 22, would be disastrous. What will happen?

MORE FIGHTS FOR "THRILLA IN DAVAO"

More. exciting combats. Royder Borbon collides against dangerous Raymart Ebones in a non-stop action clash. The contracted weight for Borbon vs Ebones is 113 pounds. This melee is a scheduled 6-chapter saga that might not make it to the final bell. Who will emerge victorious?

Moreover, tough 18-year-old flyweight Jenuel Lausa (5-6, 5 KO's) of San Pablo, Laguna, squares off Orlie Silvestre (13-5-1, 8 KO's ) of Isulan City, the capital of the Kapuoran sang Sultan Kudarat, in an eight-rounder war at a contracted-weight of 113 pounds.

The first bout of the show features fast and furious Gabriel Dasan (4-2, 2 KO's) exchanging heavy bombardment against the equally dangerous Nilo Entero in a four-chapter duel. The contracted weight for the two warriors is 109 lbs, which is one pound above the light flyweight division.

Official GBO Weigh-in ceremony will take place Friday, June 14, at the plus Crevice Hotel at 10 am.

The exciting show will be broadcast by PTV 4 in a delayed telecast and will air LIVE on Pow Salud's POWCAST for social media coverage.

According to the promoter, "Thrilla in Davao" is not just a boxing show, but a super gala for the who is who in Davao and Filipino politics. With that in mind, a glamorous red carpet formal attire boxing dinner will entertain very special invited VIP guests.
