It was recently announced that unbeaten Filipino pair Genesis Servania (23-0, 9) and Arthur Villanueva (24-0, 14) will both return on to action on March 1st on one of the next big ALA show's.
As well as the announcement that both of these world ranked fighters would be in action we also learned of their opponents.
Servania, ranked #3 by the WBO at Super Bantamweight, will be fighting against former WBA Bantamweight world champion Alexander Munoz (36-5, 28). Munoz, a hard hitting Venezuelan, is well known to Asian fans, especially the Japanese, having beaten the likes of Celes Kobayashi, Eiji Kojima, Hidenobu Honda and Nobuo Nashiro whilst also dropping a decision to Koki Kameda.
Aged 34 Munoz is a shadow of the fighter he once was though he still has his trademark power and will be looking to land his explosive shots on Servania who was, of course, in real danger of losing his unbeaten record when he took on Konsuko Komiyama in a memorable clash last year.
For Villanueva, who is ranked in the top 15 at Super Flyweight by all 4 bodies, things look even more interesting as he takes fights Juan Hernandez (23-3, 16) of Mexico. Hernandez, best known for losing to Kazuto Ioka and taking a controversial victory over Denver Cuello, will be moving up from Flyweight to Super Flyweight for this bout oddly however he is ranked by 3 of the organisations at Light Flyweight.
Aged 26 and in his prime Hernandez will be looking to score a major victory on the road. He has never claimed a win outside of Mexico but will very much be a dangerous foe for Villanueva, pictured.
Although we're awaiting more details on this card we do have to admit that it looks like it has two great matches on it already.
