Once again it's the Filipino's that treat us to the best action of the day as a a 6 bout card in Batangas is the highlight of a pretty weak looking day.
The card's 6 bouts don't really have that much excitement written across them though the preliminary bout between the unbeaten Ricky Rulay (5-0, 4) and Rey Ramos (4-1-1, 1) is a very promising 8 rounder. To date Dulay has fought just 13 rounds and with Ramos having never been stopped he could well be extended here in what could prove to be a solid match up.
Dulay isn't the only unbeaten fighter in action that as Jun Doliguez (15-0-1, 11) and JR Magboo (9-0-2, 3) look to extend their unbeaten runs. For both men the job looks easy with Doliguez taking on Arlon Batingal (7-6, 4) whilst Magboo faces Rolly Llino (4-9-1, 2). It'd be a real surprise if either of the unbeaten fighters here suffered their first reversal.
At Super Featherweight Roberto Gonzales (21-2, 12) looks to rebuild his career after suffering 2 losses last year. This will be "Calibre's" second bout this year and it'd be a shock if he lost against Eric Rapada (15-20-7, 2) who he actually beat back in 2010.
Bantamweight action takes up the card's other two bouts with Roman Canto (8-1-1, 3) facing Armando Casa (11-10-4, 3) and Jetro Pabustan (20-1-5, 6) facing the legendary Menard Zaragosa (5-11, 3) who is known for having left the ring during a bout in need of the toilet. It's hard to see either of the once beaten guys getting upset here.
In Australia the hard hitting Thai Singsiam Kokietgym (6-2, 6) looks for his biggest victory as he takes on Matthew Lytwynenko (9-2-3, 5). Also on this card in Australia is OPBF Heavyweight champion Solomon Haumono (20-1-2, 18) who is best known for stopping Japanese Heavyweight Kyotaro Fujimoto. Haumono will look to make an impact on the world scene as he takes on former world title challenger Kevin Johnson (28-3-1, 13) who himself beat Alex Leapai (27-4-3, 22) a year ago.
