Pedro Taduran Set to Defend IBF Title Feb 1 in Mexico


PhilBoxing.com




Filipino IBF minimumweight world champion Pedro Taduran (14-2, 11 KO's) of Albay Province is set to defend his red and golden belt against tough world-ranked Mexican Daniel "Cejitas" Valladares on Saturday, February 1, at the Gimnasio Cedereg in Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico.

The rumble will be the 23-year-old champion's first defense of the belt he claimed by overpowering in four rounds compatriot Samuel Salva (18-1, 11 KO's) last September in Manila, Philippines, a fight in which Taduran visited the canvas, just to get up to knock out his opponent and conquered the world title.


Taduran lands a right against Salva.

For the local Monterrey, Nuevo Leon challenger, the battle is his first shot at a world title, though Valladares has been WBC Youth Champion at 108 pounds. As a matter of fact, Valladares has been fighting his entire career as a light flyweight. But he is coming down in weight to 105 lbs to challenge the tough Filipino.

It will be the third time that Daniel Valladares battles a Pinoy warrior.

The Mexican has already stopped veteran Merlito "Tiger" Sabillo (27-7-1, 13 KO's) of Bacolod and hot Cebuano Christian Araneta (17-1, 14 KO's).


Valladares (L) connects with a right at Araneta.

It was his round four victory over "The Bomb" Araneta, 24, the one win that opened the door for Valladares to battle Taduran for a world title on February 1.

Will "Cejitas" Valladares succeed in deleting Taduran as world champion? Or will the well-focused Filipino the one to win big behind enemy lines?

The Taduran vs Valladares clash for the IBF 105 pound World Title is a production of Promociones Zanfer in association with Round Zero Promotions, Uppercut Boxing Club of the renowned coach Charro Hernández, and Cerveza Tecate.

The fight will be broadcast live on Mexico's TV Azteca 7, La Casa del Boxeo.
