PINOY PRIDE XV: PAGARA AND MONTOYA MAKE WEIGHT FOR "THE REMATCH"


PhilBoxing.com




CEBU CITY - This fight is not just for the vacant WBO International jr. welterweight title. Jason “El Niño” Pagara's future as a big fight headliner will be on the line when he fights Mexico's Rosbel Montoya in a much anticipated rematch of the fight held last September. Montoya gave Pagara a boxing lesson last year and became only the second Mexican boxer to win here in Cebu. Pagara will have to be better on Saturday.

Pagara and Montoya both weighed in at 139.5 lbs during the official weigh-in held Friday noon at the SM Cebu City Mall Events Center.

"I am anticipating a great fight. I feel strong and I am ready to fight." Montoya said after the weigh-in.

In the supporting main event for the vacant WBO super bantamweight title, Mexican boxer Jorge “El Feroz” Pazos weighed 120 lbs while Genesis 'Azukal' Servania of Bacolod City stepped in at the division limit of 122 lbs.

"I reached twelve rounds in sparring and I feel really good." Servania told this writer before the start of the weigh-in.

"I trained for three months. I am in great shape." Pazos said, "Mexico will win over the Philippines."

Jimrex 'The Executioner' Jaca weighed 143 lbs and had to shed two pounds in a hour before being given the go signal by GAB supervisor Rolando Mendoza. Angel "Arcangel' Martinez of Mexico weighed 138 lbs. Jaca is coming from a long lay-off and may be headed for an ambush.

Rising prospect "Prince" Albert Pagara weighed in at 119 lbs while Alvin Maquiling was a pound and a half over the contracted weight at 120.5 lbs. Mark Vincent Bernaldez weighed 122 lbs while Joash Apirecio was two pounds heavier.

Comedic pugilist Jojo 'Flash' Intor (126.5 lbs) will fight a Japanese opponent, Takaomi Naoma (125.75 lbs). Intor was previously scheduled to fight Peter Aldrin.For the other undercard bouts, Juren Labordo (113.5 lbs) will face Powell Balaba (108lbs) and JP Artieda (112lbs) fights Hector Rojoca (108 lbs).

PINOY PRIDE 15 will start at 6 pm at the Waterfront Hotel and Casino this Saturday.
