Misamis Oriental, Philippines
This coming Monday kicks off with a low key card from the Philippines, but one with a couple of bouts of interest.
The main event of the card is easily the most notable bout, and will see Jesse Espinas (17-2, 11) to take on Elias Joaquino (12-1-1, 6) for the MinProBA Light Flyweight title. On paper this is a really good match up between two Filipino fighters with plenty of ambition. Espinas has won his last 6, following a loss to unbeaten puncher Christian Araneta back in September 2015 and has done so against the likes of Joey Canoy, Paipharob Kokietgym and Tommy Seran. As for Jaoquino his only loss has come to former unified Minimumweight champion Francisco Rodriguez Jr, and since that loss he has returned with a win over Jimboy Haya.
In a supporting bout Jonathan Francisco (9-7-1, 3) will take on the under-rated Gerpaul Valero (21-20-4, 15). On paper this looks like a low level bout, but both of these guys are under-rated and should be able to have a very entertaining match up with each other.
