ALA Promotions, the biggest promotional outfit in the Philippines, seem set to take their banner shows "Pinoy Pride" global this year.
The first "Pinoy Pride" of the year will be on March 1st in Pasay City and then we then expect ALA to head to Davao City on April 5th.
With talks about Donnie Neites's rematch with Moises Fuentes still on-going no venue has been set, but if it is the Philippines then that would take place in Bay City in early May.
After those cards all take place their is plans to take Pinoy Pride on the road with a show on June 20th in Dubai before they cross over to the US for a show in San Diego in July.
Whilst no bouts have been set for those shows on foreign soil we'd expect them to feature some of the fighters who have been training in San Diego recently. So that could be Genesis Servania, Arthur Villanueva, Merlito Sabillo or Donnie Nietes. Also it's possible that Albert Pagara and Mark Magsayo, who, alongside Servania and Villanueva will be on the March 1st card, could be willing to travel and expose themselves to US conditions at an early stage in their careers.
