Jaro, one of the best known match makers in the Philippines, had thought he had made one of the fights of the year by pitting hard hitting Filipino Lorenzo Villanueva (25-1-0-1, 22) against Defry Palulu (10-0, 9) of Indonesia.
The bout had apparently been all but agreed for June 28th with everything being agreed and only a signature from Palulu's team being needed.
It seems however that the Indonesian got a better off from ALA gym and will instead be fighting AJ Banal (30-2-1, 21) a week earlier, much to the anger of Jaro.
It appears that with this bout falling through the card will need to be totally restructured and there is also a story that suggests Sonny Boy Jaro's (36-13-5, 26) fight with Ichal Tobida (10-11, 8) is off as well. To be fair Jaro/Tobida was a mismatch though it's still a shame to see this card crumbling with just weeks to go until the event.
