WEIGHTS FROM HONG KONG (PHOTOS)


PhilBoxing.com



Tso and Wandee Singwancha.
The young gun vs the hungry old tiger. Hong Kong's rising star WBC Asia Continental Super Flyweight Champion Rex Tso (8-0, 5KO’s) and battle-tested Thai challenger Wandee Singwancha (67-16-1, 18KO’s) successfully made weight ahead of their 12-rounder title clash in the main event of the international card “Night of Champions” tomorrow night (May 28) at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Center in Wanchai, Hong Kong.

Was it premature to put Rex Tso (with only 8 boxing matches) up against tough 84-fight veteran Thai tiger Wandee Singwancha? Will the tall young Hong Konger manage dominate the frontal attacks of the former muay thai combatant? Or will the ring experience of the 33-year-old Thailander sink Hong Kong's new star?

WBC officials for the exciting 12-rounder are: third man the legendary Bruce McTavish of New Zealand. Ringside judges Katsuhiko Nakamura of Japan, Jang-Sung Kim of Korea and Yuji Fukuchi of Japan.

WBC FEMALE WORLD TITLE CLASH ON THE LINE

The ladies made weight too. Female WBC Atom (102 lbs) World Champion Momo Koseki (15-2-1, 3KO’s) of Tokyo, Japan, making an unprecedented 11th world title defense of her title, and former WBC interim champ Eun-Young Huh (6-1-1, 0KO’s) of Guri, Korea scaled-in under 102 lbs in their first try.

WBC officilas for the world title match are: referee Katsuhiko Nakamura of Japan. Ringside judges Jang-Sung Kim of Korea, Yuji Fukuchi of Japan and Ferdinand Estrella of the Philippines.

FILIPINO FIGHTERS AND INTERNATIONAL OPPONENTS MADE WEIGHT

In the co-main event, Filipino Mike "Tyson" Tumbaga (12-18-2, 0KO’s) of Candon City in Luzon's Ilocos Sur will have the rough job of battling heavy-handed southpaw Ekapol Yothinpanawet (13-1, 9KO’s) of Thailand for the vacant WBC ABCO super lightweight crown.

The referee in charge of the Ekapol vs Tumbaga rumble is veteran third man Ferdinand Estrella of the Philippines. WBC judges for the 12-rounder WBC ABCO title are Bruce McTavish of New Zealand, Jang-Sung Kim of Korea and Yuji Fukuchi of Japan.

In a match in the super lightweight division, Filipino newcomer Alvin “Bambino” Cooney will wage his first pro combat against local Hong Konger Chan Sin Man (1-0, 0KO’s).

Also, veteran Filipino Edgar Gabejan (23-29-6, 7KO’s) of Binangonan, Rizal, will rumble fearsome Festus Omondi of Uganda in a tough bout in the featherweight division.

INTERNATIONAL FIGHTERS MAKE PRO DEBUTS

In a heavyweight clash, 29-year-old French fighter Oliver Prevost makes his pro debut against fellow rookie Lam Keng Fai, 24, of Macau.

In middleweights, 17-year-old Nepalese Nibesh Ghale makes first combat against Ng Kuok Kun, 22, also from Macau.

In a bantamweight war, A.O. Chu of Hong Kong takes on well trained Kong Kiatpracha of the Kingdom of Thailand.

"Night of Champions," the exciting international boxing card May 28 in Hong Kong is a production of promoter Jay Lau, director of DEF Boxing.


Co-main event pairing: Ekapol Yothinpanawet (L) vs Mike Tumbaga.


French heavyweight Oliver Prevost (L) and Lam Keng Fai of Macau.
