Raymond Tabugon and Lolito Sonsona who are both residing in General Santos City will take on Australia's Maloney Twins. The fights will be held at Function Centre Melbourne Park in Vicotoria Australia on August 18th.
Battle Tested Raymond Tabugon (20-7-1,10KOs) of Sanman Promotions will be facing Andrew Maloney (13-0,8KOs) for the WBA Ocenia and OPBF Silver Super flyweight Titles while newly crowned WBF (World Boxing Federation) International champion Lolito Sonsona (21-1,9KOs) of Jason Soong Promotions will challenge WBA Ocenia Super bantamweight champ Jason Maloney (13-0,11KOs)
Raymond "Tornado" Tabugon who already met big names and high caliber boxers in lower division like Luis Nery, Juan Hernandez and Juan Francisco Estrada will surely give Andrew Maloney a hard and tough fight. Tabugon's last five out of ten fights were held outside the country including his upset win over Luzuko Siyo where he captured the IBO Intercontinental Title in South Africa. Tabugon is a live underdog and could possibly give first defeat of Andrew Maloney's career.
Current WBF International champion Lolito Sonsona will be fighting abroad for the first time in his boxing career. He won the WBF title with 10 round unanimous decision over Renren Tesorio in General Santos City last February. He is the younger brother of Eden Sonsona and cousin of former world champ Marvin Sonsona.
Meanwhile Maloney Brothers are not new in facing Filipino fighters. They have combined 14-0 record against Filipino boxers.
