HCMC Vietnam March 24, 2020
One of the Philippine's most respected fighters Richard Pumicpic has the form and power to destroy the coming out party for red hot Vietnam technician Nguyen Van Gioi in Manila on May 9th. In what is sure to be a rough and tough welcome to the pro ranks, Gioi is tasked with besting the iron willed and fisted Manila boxer. The man nicknamed "The Beast" has 21 professional wins to his name, and should have many more on his resume against top opposition. It is no secret that the solidly built pinoy has been the victim some absolutely terrible decisions whilst on the road and away from his home country. In spite of that, this destructive come forward weapon of mass destruction is ranked #3 in the Philippines, and #40 in the world. He also boasts a win against Philippines top ranked super feather, “The Jaw Breaker” Joe Noynay and top ten in the world.
Vietnam's Nguyen Van Gioi is clearly a special talent. Despite limited opportunities to compete in his home country, this deft southpaw shows superb balance and timing, and is regarded by many as one of Vietnams’s most skilled warriors. Gioi fought at Victory 8 Hanoi in October 2019, and put on a near flawless display against rising star Virgel Vitor, edging the Philippines visitor with impeccable defence and counters. This is truly a testament to the skills of Nguyen Van Gioi, that he can be matched against “The Beast” Richard Pumicpic at his professional debut, and as such, a win against a fighter ranked top 40 in the world would surely be one for the record books!
