It seemed that almost every promising Filipino has been dubbed as "The next Pacquaio", unfortunately for many fighters that has been little more than a poison chalice with those fighters, typically the hard hitting and aggressive ones, swiftly losing and being cast aside as being over-hyped nobodies. The obsession with finding a new Pacquiao seems to be a real problem with few realising that a fighter like Pacquiao only comes around once in a blue moon.
As far as we're concerned the man who could well fill the void of Pacquiao, when the great "Pacman" retires, is the very exciting "Prince" Albert Pagara a man who combines aggression, power and skills like very few young fighters on the planet.
In this fight, from March 1st 2014, we get to see Pagara defeat Isack Junior of Indonesia. For much of the round it appears as though Pagara is happy to have a feeling out round, the typical opening round to a fight. In the final minute however it seems Pagara snaps and decides that their is no point in dragging the bout out as he swiftly demolishes the over-matched Indonesia ending the contest with a vicious combination.
Whilst it's obviously too early to predict how far Pagara will go his talent is obvious and we're hoping to see him develop his skills before moving on to world titles in the next few years.
