MANILA, Philippines -- Filipino Carlo "Too Sharp" Pe?alosa, 26, and his more experienced Mexican opponent Maximino "Max" Flores, 28, successfully made weight ahead of their collision for the vacant IBO Flyweight World Title.
Their rumble is scheduled to unfold tomorrow Sunday, August 25, at the TV5 Studios in Quezon City, Metro Manila, live on ESPN5 Phiippines; a fierce battle that will produce yet another world champion for the Philippines or for Mexico.
During today's official IBO weigh in ceremony, the tough and taller Max Flores (24-4-1, 17 KO's) of Baja California, Mexico came-in at 111 pounds while the less-tested Carlo Pe?alosa (14-1, 7 KO's), made half pound heavier at 111.5 lbs., and who will make his childhood dream of being a world champion a reality?
Carlo Pe?alosa's two uncles, Gerry and Dodie Boy, have been two-division world champions. Will Carlo succeed as the old men did many years ago? Or will it be the Mexican warrior Max Flores the one to emerge victorious to get back to the land of M?rquez and Morales as a new Mexican world champion?
The fight supervisor for the IBO is Steve Scott of Australia.
The card's bout sheet includes one Asia Boxing Federation (ABF) title fight plus the two exciting grand finales of GerryPens' popular UBS Ultimate Boxing Series, the successful Filipino boxing reality show that as been topping ratings on ESPN5 Philippines.
Carlo "Too Sharp" Pe?alosa vs Maximino "Max" Flores for the vacant IBO Flyweight World Title this coming Sunday August 25 is a production of Gerry Pe?alosa's Gerrypens Promotions with the assistance GerryPens' Golden Girl Cathrina Gayos, in association with ESPN5 Philippines.
