The hard hitting Taconing will be returning in a WBC International Light Flyweight title fight as he takes in fellow Filipino Salatiel Amit (9-1-2, 7), with Amit taking a huge step up in class.
Taconing's loss last time out to Lopez saw a 9 fight winning run come to an end, with wins coming against the likes of Vergilio Silvano, Roman Garcia Hirales and Jomar Fajardo. Despite that set back "Lightning" Taconing remains a top contender but will be avoided given his toughness, energy and power, and may end up waiting a long time for a third title fight.
The 24 year old Amit suffered his sole defeat in July 2015, when he came up against the highly regarded Jade Bornea, but has since reeled off 3 stoppage wins. Despite that winning run this is a massive step up in class for "Pakyaw" ad he goes up against a genuine world class fighter in a title bout.
At the moment few details regarding the under-card have been released but with this bout being sorted there is some real intrigue already in the show.
