For the popular John Riel Reponte Casimero, this one sizzling battle against glory-hungry African Warrior Duke Micah (24-0, 19 KO’s) is a super crucial rumble as he defends his hard-earned WBO 118-pound world title live on Showtime PPV.
That’s in part because the exposure that Casimero will get has never been wider.
Yes indeed, an enormous amount of fans around the world will be watching him fight in a stage that hasn’t been hotter.
Even though the 31-year old Leyteño is the favorite to retain his belt, he will be facing a good undefeated hard-hitting fighter, fans are wondering what will unfold.
That is a reason why “Quadro Alas” needs to do everything in his power to get his hand raised on fight night.
Importantly, if Casimero gets past this coming war with flying colors, odds massively increase for a bantamweight unification fight between him and the sensational former Nonito Donaire opponent: Japanese Naoya Inoue.
As a matter of fact, that unification fight is Casimero’s dream fight. Will he ever get it?
To really get it, Casimero better dismantle Duke Micah in thrilling, riveting fashion, same as how he destroyed Zolani Tete.
His fans think he can do it because of his undeniable skills, his damaging firepower and his rich ring knowledge.
In addition to that, Casimero (29-4, 20 KO’s) is in awesome physical form. Indeed, the Filipino world champion has had lots of time to train due to the pandemic.
Plus, he feels superbly motivated and positive.
As a result, the experienced 3-division world champion feels excited to enter in the ring and WIN.
Casimero is 100% focused on this victory.
After that, he can move on to fight Naoya Inoue or whoever.
But most importantly, above all, a committed family man, Johnriel shares from his heart that he is fighting for his cute daughters and his entire family.
Tough in the ring, but tender at home, Casimero got the angel face of his daughter tattooed on his chest. Isn’t that truly lovely?
Yes absolutely. Family is Johnriel’s blessed inspiration, the divine feeling that makes him ready to do his best Saturday night and ALWAYS.
Casimero is my amigo since we met in Panama years ago. I appreciate him, his dad, brother and family.
That is why from my heart I wish that Johnriel will again emerge from battle VICTORIOUS. 🙏🏼
His exciting fight is this Saturday at the spectacular Mohegan Sun ☀️ in the USA. (Sunday morning here in the Philippines).
