PhilBoxing.com




Marc ?Gwapo? Pagcaliwangan returns to the ring today again in Halifax, Nova Scotia against David Kanalas for this sixth fight since his professional debut last September. Pagcaliwangan heads into this fight with a perfect record of 5 wins and 5 TKO?s and is seeking to chalk up his sixth win against Kanalas who has 13 wins and 7 losses.

The official weight for the 23 year old Filipino-Canadian Marc ?Gwapo? Pagcaliwangan was 123.2 lbs while his 21 year old opponent from Hungary David Kanalas weighed in at an even 124 lbs. The fight contract is for 122 lbs however due to the late addition of this fight that was finalized last Monday, both fighters agree to square it off in the ring with the minimal weight difference.

The younger David Kanalas recently fought and won on August 9 in Slovakia, the 13 wins he has accumulated were all in Europe. Although he is 2 years younger than Pagcaliwangan, Kanalas has faced more competition which includes fights with against the likes of two Canadian boxers Tyson Cave and Sebastian Gauthier.

Since training in Montreal with his Coach Ian McKillop, Marc ?Gwapo? Pagcaliwangan has had the opportunity to evolve and close the gap with this fighting style, Pagcaliwangan has also demonstrated much more focus and patience in the ring. Pagcaliwangan is still a work in progress but is developing with a lot of potential, he is hungry to win and keep his record perfect at the expense of David Kanalas.
