JACA JOINS PINOY PRIDE XXIII UNDERCARD


PhilBoxing.com




WBO Oriental junior welterweight titlist Jimrex ‘The Executioner’ Jaca (38W-6L-3D, 21 KO’s) will go up against Wellem Reyk (17W-7L-3D, 5 KO's) of Indonesia in a non-title contest on the undercard of the 23rd edition of Pinoy Pride.

Jaca had an unfortunate trip to Australia last October when he was scheduled to fight Chad Bennett of Australia on the undercard of Sugar Shane Mosley’s bout against Australian Anthony Mundine.

But when Mosley pulled out of the fight, Jaca and his trainer Franklin Albia were stuck and not paid their due purse. Albia also told this writer last month a rather distressing story that in Australia he was approached by someone who offered him money for Jimrex to lose the fight.

The southpaw Jaca won his regional title last May with a twelve round unanimous decision win over Jose Emilio Perea of Mexico at the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel.

Reyk was stopped by Filipino Jay Solmiano in two rounds early this year in Taguig City but has bounced back with two wins in Indonesia against Evers Wellem and Roy Tua Manihuruk.

PINOY PRIDE XXIII: “Filipinos Kontra Latinos” will be held at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City on November 30. The event will feature two world title bouts plus three more boxers from the ALA gym against five boxers from Latin America.

Donnie “Ahas” Nietes will defend his WBO light flyweight world title against Sammy Gutierrez of Mexico, WBO minimumweight champ Merlito 'Tiger' Sabillo will challenger Carlos Buitrago of Nicaragua, Milan Melindo will trade punches with Mexican Jose Alfredo Rodriguez, WBO International light welterweight champion Jason Pagara squares off against Vladimir Baez of the Dominican Republic, and AJ Banal will fight Lucian Gonzalez of Puerto Rico.

The opening bout of the evening will be a four rounder between Justo Bornilla of Albay and Diover Mangaya-ay of La Union.
