MP Promotions Presents: Salva vs Taduran, Magramo vs Nantapech in Exciting IBF Double-Header Saturday on ABS CBN S+A


PhilBoxing.com




Manny Pacquiao is not only our greatest boxer and visionary Senator. He has become a prolific, successful promoter, staging continuous fight cards featuring Filipino talents in world class boxing action.

Just last week the "Pacman" produced the WBO battle of Casimero vs Flores on ABS CBN. It was a thrilling rumble that ended up with Casimero delivering a massive KO to the visiting Mexican Cesar Ramirez. This coming Saturday, September 7, the boxing fun continues at the Philippine Navy Gym Jurado Hall in Taguig, Metro Manila, live on ABS CBN S+A.

In the main event two Filipino boxers battle for the IBF Minimumweight World Title.

Unbeaten "Silent Assassin" Samuel Salva (17-0, 10 KO's) of Iligan City, fights fellow Pinoy warrior, former world-title challenger Pedro Taduran (13-2, 10 KO's) of Albay Province in a rumble that will produce yet another world champion for the Philippines, unless the rumble ends up in a draw.

Salva, 22, earned the right to fight for the world title by decisioning Zamboangueño fighter Rene Mark Cuarto (17-2-1, 10 KO's) in a competitive IBF eliminator last March at Resorts World, Metro Manila.

This is Salva's chance to complete his mission by winning the world title belt that he has dreamed of for years. Will Salva be able to accomplish the mission, as his handlers wish?

Not an easy mission. Taduran is not an easy prey.

Born in Libon, Albay Province, Pedro Taduran -- also 22 year-old -- is no stranger to fighting for a world title.


WBC champion Menayothin and Taduran.

In August of last year, the southpaw Pedro Taduran battled formidable WBC Minimumweight World Champion Wanheng Menayothin (53-0, 18 KO's) over twelve demanding rounds in the far away Province of Nakhon Sawan in the Kingdom of Thailand.

I traveled there to Nakhon Sawan, Thailand, to attend Taduran's fight.

And I can say from my eyes and my mind that the Filipino Taduran fought good.

Yes, the Thai world champion Menayothin won the combat. Yes, the Thai was much more experienced and really effective, and outmaneuver Pedro in that incredibly hot and sunny Wednesday afternoon in the that Province in northern Thailand.

At the end, scores were wide in favor of Wanheng Menayothin, but Taduran showed determination, big heart, excellent physical conditioning, good boxing skills, and discipline.

The Thai world champion could not knock Taduran out, even though he tried. Pedro fought well. No regrets.

That is why in my mind, the Samuel Salva vs Pedro Taduran clash for the IBF 105-pound world title is a really excellent match up.

For me, it is very balanced. I see it 50-50. Both young warriors have proven to fans that they owe boxing skills and know how fight tough foes an important stage.



Fans are in for a cool ride.

And very importantly, Philippines will claim yet another world title in boxing. You may try to be there at the Philippine Navy Gym this Saturday night.

CO-FEATURE: MAGRAMO VS NANTEPECH IN IBF ELIMINATOR

In the co-feature, hard-puncher IBF #4 Giemel "Pistolero" Magramo (23-1, 19 KO's) of Parañaque, Metro Manila, engages in battle tough Thai fighter, former muay thai combatant IBF # 3 Komgrich Nantapech (25-5, 16 KO's) in a 12-rounder IBF Flyweight World Title Eliminator.

The winner claims the right to fight experienced veteran IBF Flyweight World Champion Moruti Mthalane (38-2, 25 KO's) of South Africa.

Who will emerge victorious?

Will Magramo download tough a crushing barrage of punches all over the Thai, rocking him badly, causing his demise?

Or will the Thai warrior Nantapech be able to dominate the Pinoy this coming Saturday live on TV. Stakes are really high. As I told you, try to be there. But if you can't then, maybe you can watch it on TV. 👍

According to MP Promotions President Sean Gibbons, the show this Saturday, September 7, will air LIVE on ABS CBN S+A.

"Yes, the show will be broadcast live from the Philippines Navy Gym starting at 7 PM," assured Sean Gibbons, Pacquiao's right hand man at MP Promotions.

May the Best Men Win...!!!
