OPBF lightweight champ Randy "Komong Bato" Suico will headline a big boxing event put up by MP Promotions and Rex "Wakee" Salud International Promotions on April 21 as part of the "Kadaugan sa Mactan" commemorating Lapu-Lapu's defeat of conqueror Ferdinand Magellan.
The 10-bout event, which will be co-headlined by the RP superflyweight title defense of Eden Sonsona against Richard Olisa, will be held at the Lapu-Lapu City Auditorium, according to promoter Rex 'Wakee" Salud.
Suico will take on Thailand's Sornkom Jockeygym in a ten-round, non-title affair.
Ex-PABA light-flyweight champ Marvin Tampos will also see action in a 10-round non-title showdown with Bohol's Allan Ranada. Tampos is aching for a showdown with RP bantam champ Michael Domingo.
Boxing Promoters Rex 'Wakee' Salud (R) of RWS International and Bong Yap of Black Scorpion Promotion pose for a photo during last Sunday's boxing event at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.
"We have lined up an exciting card. We originally wanted to get some big names for the show, but due to other commitments, the other boxers we wanted were not available," Manny Pacquiao told Philboxing.com in a recent cruise off Mactan waters.
Salud, a close associate of the Pacman, says that the slambang card is put up in cooperation with Lapu-Lapu City Mayor Arturo Radaza, who was reportedly smitten by the idea of Pacquiao playing the role of Lapu-Lapu for the re-enactment of his conquest of Magellan.
The rest of the card will pit Darrel Pucdol versus Dante Cantiga; John Reil Casimiro versus Marvin Sonsona; Daniel Ponce Villacura against Esrael Sapo; Rodulfo Sumabong versus Tata Recablanca; Jayson Siaton versus John Mark Ranan; Ali Cali against TBA; and Emelio Ervas versus Tata Tadena.
Pacquiao is slated to personally guest at ringside for the event, said Salud.
