Metro Manila, Philippines
In the Philippines fans get a small but notable show with two title bouts, one of which features a former world title challenger and another features an unbeaten prospect.
The former world title challenger is Bernabe Concepcion (34-6-2, 20) who faces former OPBF title challenger Jimmy Paypa (17-3-1, 6) in a bout for the WBO Oriental Super Bantamweight title. Last year we saw Paypa being stopped in a round by Shingo Wake and this will be his second bout since that loss. As for Concepcion he is unbeaten since a 7th round TKO loss to Mikey Garcia, however he has only gone 4-0-1 in the 4 years since that loss.
The other title fight will see Roberto Gonzales (26-2, 16) battle the unbeaten Arjan Canillas (13-0-2, 10) for the GAB Lightweight title in what looks like a really well matched bout. On paper Gonzalez will be favoured however the unbeaten Canillas is genuinely promising and has been scoring notable wins recently, including a victory last year against Rey Labao. If the 22 year old Canillas scores a win here then he really could be on his way to an OPBF title fight in the near future.
Staying with Filipinos it's worth noting that the criminally under-rated Adones Aguelo (24-13-2, 16) will be in action in the US against former world title challenger Miguel Marriaga (22-1, 19). Marriaga came to the attention of the wider boxing public last year when he gave Nicholas Walters a very tough bout and if he puts up another performance like that here there is a good chance he'll over-come Aguelo, however the Filipino can never be written off and is very much an upset minded fighter who will travel to win.

In the UK fight fans will be able to see Indian fighter Vijender Singh (3-0, 3) continue his professional career as he takes on Alexander Horvath (5-1-1, 1). Singh does appear to have some promise but at 30 years old it's now time he began to face stiffer tests than Horvath, who was stopped inside a round last November.
