Unbeaten blue chip prospects Dodie Boy Peñalosa,Jr (10-0, 10 knockouts) and his brother Dave Peñalosa (5-0, 3 KOs) will be facing Thai boxers in Macau on April 6 on the undercard of the WBO/WBA world flyweight title fight between Brian 'The Hawaiian Punch' Viloria and challenger Juan Francisco Estrada of Mexico.
Promoter and former two division world champion Gerry Peñalosa informed philboxing that he has cancelled Dodie Boy,Jr's scheduled fight on March 23 at the Cuneta Astrodome against Lizandro delos Santos of Mexico as well as Dave's fight against another Mexican, Juan Jimenez on the undercard.
Dodie Boy,Jr is set to make his second overseas appearance when he fights Ngaotawan Sithsaithong (10W-8L-1D, 5 KO's) in a scheduled eight rounder while Dave will have his overseas debut against Cheroenchai Sithsaithong (4W-3L, 3 KO's) set for six rounds.
Dodie Boy Jr. was on the undercard of Pacquiao-Marquez 4 last December in Las Vegas and scored an impressive stoppage win against Jesus Lule of Florida in two rounds. In his last fight, Dave stopped Yodpichai Sithsaithong of Thailand in four rounds last August in Mandaluyong City.
They are the progeny of former two division world champion Diosdado ‘Dodie Boy’ Peñalosa. Promoter Gerry Peñalosa also informed this writer a couple of weeks ago that his nephew Dodie,Jr has picked up his first television commercial endorsement.
Another Filipino boxer set to see action on the undercards is WBO number one flyweight contender Milan Melindo, who is penned to fight Tommy Seran of Indonesia.
