BENGUET BOXING ON OCT 13: GABUTAN TRADES LEATHER WITH DANGEROUS INDONESIAN; ROILO GOLEZ CHALLENGES MABAO FOR WBC ASIAN TITLE


PhilBoxing.com




Benguet gears up for an exciting evening of international boxing. World rated WBO Oriental Bantamweight champion Dayer Gabutan Singwancha (left in the photo), will defend his coveted belt against dangerous Indonesian Lande Olin on the campus of Benguet State University (BSU) on Saturday October 13.

The exciting news was delivered to Philboxing today by the card's promoter, international matchmaker Brico Santig of Highland Boxing.

For Gabutan (18-1-2, 8KO's), the current world's # 4 bantamweight, the bout will be the 6th title defense of the WBO Oriental belt he captured two years ago by outpointing fellow Filipino Jilo Merlin in Angeles City, Pampanga.

In his last combat last May, the 24 year-old Ilocos Sur native scored a unanimous decision win over Dado Cabintoy in Pasig City, Metro Manila.

Gabutan's dangerous opponent is Indonesia's Lande Olin (11-3, 7KO's), a heavy handed southpaw who has reigned as Indonesia's bantamweight champion, a title he earned by knocking out Muhammad Nurfawaid in two rounds in Jakarta.

According to a certification from Captain Anthon Sihombing, chairman of the Indonesia Boxing Commission, the 27 year-old Lande Olin has been fighting professionally since August of 2007 and stands at 1.68m, same as Gabutan.

Both Gabutan and Lande Olin fight with a southpaws stance, throw the right jab and their power hand is the straight left; however, the Indonesian percentage of fights won by knockout is higher than the one of the Filipino.

"That's OK. Gabutan Singwancha is excited to make the sixth defend his WBO Oriental title against an Indonesian who hits hard. Its a good opportunity to showcase his best boxing," said Brico Santig, promoter of the Filipino.

Santig went on to say:

"Gabutan is the current WBO world #4, going upwards in the rankings after the Banal vs Pungluang title fight Oct 20. Banal is #1, Pungluang is #2 and veteran African champion Paulus Ambunda is #3. So Gabutan is aiming at getting the top position, that's the goal. That's why he needs a big win," said Brico Santig today.


ROILO GOLEZ CHALLENGES DONNY MABAO FOR WBC TITLE


In the high octane co-main event, Roilo Golez of Compostela Valley looks forward to exchange high caliber artillery against fellow stablemate WBC Asia Council Continental minimumweight champion "Mr. Shallow" Donny Mabao, 23, of Bukidnon.

The 25 year-old Golez is the brave fighter who has ventured behind enemy lines against the world's best warriors in Thailand and Mexico

Both Golez and Mabao belong to the stable of boxers sponsored by Thailand's boxing patron Naris Singwancha.

The Donny Mabao-Roilo Golez clash will be for Donny's WBC Asia Council Continental minimumweight title.


MORE FIGHTS

Exciting undercards will support the event.

In a 10-rounder action in the featherweight division, local Benguet kid Alvin Tam (11-3, 2KO's) will go to to war against Prell Tupas (7-17-4 1KO) of Taguig City.

Also scheduled is undefeated super featherweight Steven Gelawa (2-0, 0KOs), in a collision course with 20 year-old Arnel Taganas (2-5, 1KO) of Butuan, Agusan del Norte.
