Herlan Gomez Makes Weight for ABF 118 Title Fight in Highland Show at SpacePlus Bangkok


PhilBoxing.com





BANGKOK, Thailand -- Pogi Filipino Bantamweight Herlan Sixto Gomez of Saravia, Negros Occidental, and former world champ "Pigmy" Wicha Phulaikhao (64-19-2, 28 KO's) successfully made weight ahead of their 10-round war for the vacant ABF Bantamweight Title.

The crucial rumble unfolds as the main event of the exciting Brico Santig's Highland Boxing Promotion show set for Wednesday, February 22, at the plush SpacePlus Night Club, RCA Plaza, in Bangkok, Thailand.

The fight is an important mission for the 22-year-old Gomez (6-1, 3 KO's), willing to advance his promising boxing career. A set back would be disastrous.

In the co-feature, veteran Japanese warrior Toshihiko Era (9-1, 8 KO's) of Osaka will battle taller 29-year-old Sandeep Kumar (11-1-1, 8 KO's) of Gurgaon, India, in a 10-chapter struggle for the vacant WBA Asia South Title.



🇯🇵 Toshihiko Era 恵良敏彦 (9-1, 8 KO’s), of Osaka, Japan, showed his clinched right fist to his younger fearless Indian opponent Sandeep Kumar (11-1-1, 8 KO’s), wanting to KO him. Will Era be able to do that to become the new WBA ASIA East Flyweight champion?

Or will the taller Kumar be one to emerge VICTORIOUS? Kumar 50.6 kilos, Toshihiko 50.8 kilos.

Fans can WATCH live from Highland Boxing Promotion YouTube channel and Facebook page. The Show starts at 16:00 hours Bangkok Time (UTC +7).



Then, in a battle of unbeaten warrior women, cute and dangerous Hong Kong combatant Yang Sheau Ru weighed-in at 50.7 kilos, while young and tough Ketsara Jatpukdee of Thailand made 50.2 kilos.

The two women clash for Thailand’s vacant PAT Flyweight belt; fans wondering what undefeated fighting girl will be the winner.

The skilled Hong Kong boxer girl Yang Sheau Ru, 28, aims at her first win of the year after a successful 2022 boxing campaign in "The Land of Smiles," Thailand, while her much younger rival, Ketsara Jatpukdee, has victory plans of her own.

Ketsara comes from scoring an exciting round three TKO win just a few weeks ago, now wanting the head of Yang. Will she get it?

In another women's clash, beautiful 25-year-old lady boxer Napaporn Ruengsuwan (5-3, 2 KO's, a.k.a. Baitong Highland Gym), will lock horns against fellow Thai Nong Aom SBK Gym in a hot war in the super bantamweight division.

Also in the show, hard-hitting Afghan fighter Ahmad Samir Dawrani (8-2-1, 5 KO's) and experienced former Muay Thai combatant Pinai Wongbutsri of Sa Kaeo, Thailand, successfuly beat the scalse ahead of their 8-chapter blow-by-blow skirmish in the welterweight division.

For the first pro bout of the evening, Thai 126-pound rookie Pobtham Julla will battle Thailand compatriot Thawin Srisongkhram in a 4-round war in the featherweight division.

A number of scheduled action-packed amateur bouts will complete the Highland's fight show billed as "Global Rivals."

The excitement will air live in Thailand. It will also be available for free from the YouTube channel of Highland Boxing, and from Highland Promotion’s Facebook page.

Supervisor for the event will be Royal Thai Army Major General Damrong Simakajornboon. ABF President Naris Singwancha will oversee the event with Dr. Jirasak Bubpachart acting as the physician in charge. The third man will be veteran referee Worawut Duankhao.

The card in Thailand is organized by Filipino Brico Santig of Highland Boxing Promotions in association with Thai man of boxing Supanat Chanram and SpacePlus director Tony Chen.
