Albert Pagara and Tawanrung Eausampan together with the other protagonists of Maasin Pride IV had their weigh in and press conference this morning at the Maasin City Integrated and Bus Terminal. A press conference was also held attended by the Associated Media of Southern Leyte. Before the event they paid a courtesy call at the Office of the City Mayor.

WBO international light-welterweight champion Jason Pagara was also at the weigh in.
“I am so happy to be here in the Philippines and I promised to put up a good fight,” said Eausampan through an interpreter.
