They will be fighting for the vacant WBO Oriental Bantamweight title.

Milan Melindo and Muhammad Rachman easily made 106 lbs. on their first attempt. Michael Domingo weighed 120 ? lbs. while his opponent Monico Laurente weighed 122 ? lbs. on his first attempt but managed to shed off the excess weight on his second try.

James Bacon easliy made the superfeatherwieght limit at 129 but William Jorge also had to shed off two pounds.

The undercard boxers Joseph von Minoza vs Rufino Mante, Marjohn Makahilig vs Marlon Ariesga, Ricardo Campana vs Jherpol Valero easily made their respective weight limits. Jomar Cordinillo weighed 105 lbs. while his opponent Ricky Nunez had to shed an excess pound in weight.

Fight day is tomorrow Saturday at 6:30 PM at the Waterfront Hotel in Cebu City.

Here is an interesting bit of trivia for boxing fans: Leyva's trainer, Raul ?Jibaro? Perez, fought Luisito Espinosa in Japan October 1995. Louie beat him by first round KO and then fought Manuel Medina to win his second world title two months later.Perez was already an ex-champ during the time he fought Espinosa. He won the WBC bantamweight title in 1988 and the WBC superbantamwieght title in 1991. He has been a trainer now for five years. Perez praised the host city which he describes as ?muy bonito?.
