In the Philippines this Friday fans get the chance to see a pair of title bouts as well as action from several other notable fighters.
One of those title bouts will see Vergil Puton (14-6, 7) battle against journeyman Rex Olisa (10-28-1, 8) in a contest for the PBF Featherweight title. Puton is coming into this one on a 3 fight losing streak however he is better than his record suggests and should over-come Olisa here, even if he does have to go the distance.
The other title bout will see the the unpredictable Ronald Pontillas (17-8-3, 8) battle against former world title challenger Balweg Bangoyan (18-10, 7). This bout is for the PBF Lightweight title and sees both men really going in to this one in need of a win. Pontillas, a former OPBF champion, has won just 2 of his last 6 whilst Bangoyan, who once fought Toshiaki Nishioka, has gone 2-6 in his last 8 bouts.
In one of the under-card bouts the promising Ernesto Saulong (18-1-1, 7) will be up against Edison Berwela (13-32-8, 3). This is a mismatch on paper and should be an easy win for Saulong however it is still good to see the 26 year old in the ring. Another promising fighter on this card is Minimumweight hopeful Toto Landero (6-0-2, 2) who faces Ryan Bajala (4-4-1, 2) in a 10 rounder. This should be a win for Landero though we're hoping to see him improve his his power as he matures in the near future.

In Australia we'll see Filipino born Rex Regalado (1-6-1), who will be trying to score his second successive win as he takes on the win-less Mitchell Dawson (0-1).
