MICHAEL FARE?AS WILL FIGHT PHILIPPINE FEATHERWEIGHT CHAMPION EDGAR GABEJAN ON SEPTEMBER 24 IN CEBU


PhilBoxing.com




Michael Fare?as (32-3-3, 26 KOs), a prot?g? of 2-division world champion ?Fearless? Gerry Pe?alosa, will try to win the Philippine Championship in the 126-lbs. division on September 24 initially planned to be staged in the Cebu province at a venue to be determined. Fare?as will have his hands full in winning the Philippine diadem as the defending champion, Edgar Gabejan (22-24-4, 6 KOs) of the Jaro Boxing Gym is determined to hold on to his newly-acquired title. Gabejan won the championship via a close split decision against former featherweight champion, Vinvin Rufino (29-14-3, 13 KOs)?last June 18 held at Binangonan, Rizal.

The Philippine featherweight championship was vacant when Gabejan fought Rufino. Earlier, Rufino was stripped of this same title because of his failure to defend his title for more than 1 year as his latest defense was way back March 25, 2010 beating Adones Aguelo. Under the June 2011 Philippine (GAB) ratings, Fare?as was the No. 1 contender so he had the opportunity to fight for the vacant 126-lbs. title. However, he agreed to step aside and allowed the 2 available contenders at that time (Gabejan and Rufino) to fight for the vacant title with the condition that the winner will be mandated to fight him within 90 days.

This 12-round championship match was confirmed by Pe?alosa himself in a telephone conversation with Dr. Nasser Cruz, Boxing Chief of the Games and Amusements Board (GAB) last tuesday, August 9 around 4 p.m. The said call was initiated by Dr. Cruz while the monthly meeting of the GAB Ratings Committee was going on as part of the agenda of said meeting. This writer was present during the meeting as a member of the GAB Ratings Committee.

In his latest fight last July 16, Fare?as won against Fernando Beltran, Jr. at Honolulu, Hawaii.

The Fare?as vs. Gabejan contest will serve as one of the supporting main events in the next offering of Gerrypens Promotions featuring the ?Dugong Kampeon? Dodie Boy Pe?alosa Jr. (6- 0-0, 6 KOs)
