Feb 18, Saturday Night Boxing in Makati Featuring Former Champion and Olympian
After more than a year of hiatus, the former Superflyweight Champ will be back in the ring tomorrow night against Mateo Handig who have been searching for a win since 2013. Handig's last win was when he fought in LA Trinidad in Bengeut against Katsunari Takayama. Handig at age 27 is still young and a win against the heavily favored Drian Francisco can revitalize his career and propel him to the limelight. Handig's record stand at 13 wins and 12 losses.
On the other hand, Drian Fancsico ( 28 wins, 4 losses and 1 draw) is also on a comeback trail after suffering a loss to one of the best Super Bantamweights in the world, Guillermo Rigondeaux. That fight was supposed to be his key to world recognition but he fell short and lost via unanimous decision last november 21, 2015.
23 year old former olympian and gold medalist at the South East Asian Games Marc Anthony Barriga will also see action as he tries to continue on a winning streak from his young professional boxing career. Barriga will be facing 39 bouts veteran fighter in Geboi Mansalayao (replacement).
We will also be seeing actions from:
Daniel Lim vs Janie Canoy and Joepher Montano vs Junar Adante
