Attention turns to the Philippines this coming Wednesday where fans will get a small card with a few notable domestic level fighters involved.
Thghhe main event will see 33 year old veteran Monico Laurente (30-13, 7) take on Anthony Sabalde (12-8-0-1, 7) in a bout for the vacant PBF Super Featherweight title. Coming in to this Laurente has won 6 of his last 7, with the only loss during that run coming to the once touted Kazuki Tanaka. At 33 we do wonder what Laurente has left in the tank but he is proven at this level. As for Sabalde this is a chance to end a 3 fight losing streak, which included losses to Nihito Arakawa and Lei Wang. Sabalde is limited but durable and should be able to make this pretty interesting.
In a leading support bout Raymond Empic (6-2, 2) will take on Margarito Moya (9-7, 3). The 26 year old Empic is riding a 4 fight winning streak, though has fought only twice in the last 4 years. Moya on the other hand has lost his last 5, by stoppage, and is more than 2 years removed from his last win. It's an interesting match up, but not a mouth watering or exciting looking one.
