Exciting Filipino Super Flyweight puncher Aston Palicte (19-1, 17) will be continuing his climb through the ranks on November 14th as part of an upcoming Tibay Ng Pinoy card, promoted by MP Promotions.
The heavy handed Filipino banger is set to be matched relatively easily as he faces Thailand's limited Wisanlek Sithsaithong (13-8, 9), who has been stopped 6 times in 21 bouts. In fact Wisanlek has been stopped every time he has faced an opponent of some current name value, such as Fahlan Sakkreerin Jr, Ratchasak KKP and Edrin Dapudong.
Palicte, a fighter with real power and potential, comes in to this bout on a run of 9 straight stoppage victories and it's likely that run will continue here when he faces a man who really shouldn't trouble him at all.
For those who haven't seen Palicte he boasts not only an aggressive mentality and serious power but also a fan friendly style. He has got flaws, especially in his defense, but he is ironing them out fight by fight. To date he has claimed only one title, the IBF Youth Super Flyweight title, however a win over Wisanlek will see him also add the WBO Oriental Super Flyweight title to his collection, and move into the WBO world rankings.
For Wisanlek this is a big opportunity but one that is likely to see him on a hiding to nothing against one of the most exciting Filipino prospects out there.
