Over the past 24 hours we've seen Filipino promoter Sanman Promotions announce the signings of two talented and promising Filipino prospects, with the promoter making it clear that they can sign up some of the top young talent in the country, just like promotional rivals ALA.
The fighters in question are boxing brothers Jake and Jade Bornea.
The more experienced of the two brothers is Jake (11-1, 5) who currently holds the WBO Asia Pacific Youth Flyweight title, which he has defended once. Although he's not widely known outside of the Philippines he has scored notable domestic wins over Michael Enriquez, Richard Rosales and Renerio Arizala, and has ran up 5 wins since his sole defeat back in 2014 to Raymond Tabugon.
The unbeaten Jade (5-0, 3) is tipped as a future star and was a stand out amateur, claiming a very notable win over Kosei Tanaka in the unpaid ranks. He's yet to step up as a professional but did win the Philippines Mindanao Professional Boxing Federation (MinProBA) Super Flyweight title last time out and will be back in the ring on October 21st, to take on veteran Albert Alcoy.
The two will be managed by Alex Amoy of the Amoy Boxing stable but be promoted by Sanman going forward.
