After a huge weekend in Japan we see action quieten off and the only Asian card this coming Monday is a small show in the Philippines.
The main event of the card is an interesting GAB Light Flyweight title fight as Lester Abutan (11-6-3, 5) takes on the out of form Rene Patilano (16-3-3, 8). Abuton comes into this bout as the reigning champion, having won the belt last June when he defeated Renren Tesorio, and he's certainly better than his record suggests, having run Fahlan Sakkreerin very close last year. Once touted as one to watch Patilano has lost 2 of his last 4, including a 6th round KO loss to Kosei Tanaka. This could be an excellent bout for fans at the Binan Town Plaza.
Another interesting look bout will see Lloyd Jardeliza (7-5-3, 6), a former OPBF Super Bantamweight title contender, take on Jimmy Aducal (8-6-2, 6) in what could be a bombs away affair. Neither man is going to the top, but both can bang, and both have very similar records, suggesting this a real 50-50.
One other bout of note will see Mark Rey Taday (6-2, 3) take on the once beaten Toto Landero (8-1-2, 2) in another good match up. Again neither guy looks likely to be moved into a world title fight any time soon, if ever, but both can be very good at domestic level and this could be a really fun bout.
