In Benguet this coming Thursday Filipino fight fans will have a relatively small card, made up of 4 rounders between novices. As with similar cards from other parts of Asia these shows aren't going to attract attention to a wider audience but should be fun due to the competitive match making and the fact both men fight to win. Something that other promoters should be thinking about with their match making.
One bout on this card will see American born Filipino based Bengar Garcia (2-4, 2) take on Ronniel Tabayag (3-1-1, 2) in what should be a relatively explosive contest. Both men last time out and both have belief in their power. Neither is likely to make it far in this sport, but a match up like this tends to be more enjoyable to watch than a squash match between a prospect and a journeyman.
A similar match up will see novices Carl Jeffrey Basil (1-0, 1) and Leslie Manalo (0-1) face off. Again neither man is expected to go far, but Manalo will be there looking for a win over Basil, whilst Basil will be looking to build on his debut win over John Michael Pablador.
