Nguyen Van Hai vs Jino Rodrigo Set to Collide in Manila in March


PhilBoxing.com



Hai (L) and Rodrigo

Vietnamese lightweight Nguyen Van Hai (2-0, 1 KO) has been challenged to fight dangerous Pinoy “The Silent Beast” Jino Rodrigo of Antipolo, Rizal in March; and the tough challenge has been accepted, said VSP Boxing Promotions earlier today.

The fight will fire up the ring as part of an exciting event in March in Manila, headlined by unbeaten hard-hitting Davaeño super featherweight “King’s Warrior” Charly Suarez (9-0, 6 KO’s)

The Vietnamese 135-pounder Nguyen Van Hai has long been regarded as a excellent, experienced amateur fighter, although he hasn’t seen any action at all in 30 long months. 😬

Still, Hai has kept himself running, working out, sparring, and profusely sweating every day in the gym, with the mind set of “never giving up.”

As an amateur boxer, Nguyen Van Hai won the Vietnam national championships, and claimed medals in Asian Games in various weight-classes. 👍

But due to limited opportunities to battle as a pro, Nguyen Van Hai hasn’t fought much, currently being unbeaten in just 2 fights one of them he won by KO.

That’s why, Nguyen Van Hai signed with VSP Boxing Promotions last year, in an attempt to kick off his pro boxing career, searching for a brighter future for his family.

However, he has been unable to fight due to Covid and ongoing global travel restrictions. 🦠😬

So, Nguyen Van Hai’s coming fight in Manila will be his first battle in long, long time as well as his first major battle for VSP Promotions.

VSP Promotions is the Vietnamese boxing outfit that has managed to stage 5 fight events in the Philippines this year in partnership with Elorde Promotions.

Notably, the friendly Nguyen Van Hai has always been a natural lightweight (135 pounds).

However, he has been requested to go up to 141 pounds for his war in the Philippines against the naturally much bigger Jino Rodrigo.

The kind and brave Vietnamese said “Yes sir, sure, I can do it.”

Meanwhile, his opponent, Jino Rodrigo has been in outstanding form this year who, last July, defeated battle-tested Roberto Gonzales (28-7-1, 17 KO’s) of Agoncillo, Batangas.

Absolutely. the Filipino “Silent Beast” Jino Rodrigo has remained busy.

Plus, he is having a really big battle ahead in a couple of weeks against really tough Cebuano former WBA featherweight interim champ “El Kapitan” Jhack Tepora who has been a fighter of Cebu’s Omega Gym.


Jhack Tepora (R) in action.

Jhack Tepora has piled up the really good record of 23 wins in 24 fights, only one defeat with 17 knockouts. So let’s find out who wins the thrilling Tepora vs Rodrigo clash.

The “Silent Beast” Jino Rodrigo has looked sharp in sparring sessions with Cebu stablemate world-ranked 130-pounder “The Jaw Breaker” Joe Noynay from Bogo in preparation for his clash against the other Cebuano warrior Jhack Tepora.

Nguyen Van Hai just hopes that his presence this coming March in the Philippines will add excitement to the Manila show.

May the Best Men Win!
