MILENDO, DOMINGO IN "DUELO" CARD OCT. 3

The already-exciting "Duelo Del Guapos" card on Oct. 3 at the Cuneta Astrodome just got even more explosive with the inclusion of two exciting matches featuring ALA fighters Milan Milendo and Michael Domingo going up against a Mexican and a former US Olympian.
The card, promoted by Solar Sports and Saved by the Bell, will be headlined by Filipino Drian Francisco against Roberto Vasquez for the vacant WBA International superflyweight crown.
ALA Gym's Michael Aldeguer, in a message to Philboxing.com last night, informed that Milendo will take on Mexican Ivan "Pollito" Meneses (14-5-1, 8 KO's) in a ten-round duel which will serve as the chief support to the card.
"This will be an explosive card from the bottom up to the main bouts. Fans will love this," said promoter Elmer Anuran of Saved by the Bell.
Milendo was originally training to face compatriot Denver Cuello on the "Island Assault" card in Hawaii recently, but Cuello could not secure a US visa in time for the fight, and organizers failed to inform parties that the fight would be a non-title go instead of being a WBC International tiff as earlier announced.
Domingo, who is considered one of the most underrated fighters in the country who helped notch one victory for the Philippines in its duel with Mexico at the "Boxing World Cup", will take on former US Olympian Jose Navarro (26-4, 12 KO's), whose four losses were all via decisions all in world title bouts.
Both Milendo and Domingo have been extensively training at the ALA Gym, and are poised to give fans their money's worth in this event which will also showcase Filipinos Michael Farenas and Al Sabaupan.
