Bornea Bracing for War Against Thai Foe



One doesn’t have to remind Jade Bornea how high the stakes are in his upcoming fight against a Thailander opponent.

In fact, the 22-year-old boxer from General Santos City is feeling some pressure to deliver but don’t expect him to just cave in as he vowed to put on an spectacular show against Jakkrawut Majoogoen in the main event of “Road to Stardom” fight card slated September 9 in Polomolok, South Cotabato.

“There’s a little pressure as it will be my first defense of my IBF Youth title, but I’ll use that pressure to my advantage since I perform better when under pressure especially against good opponents,” said Bornea.

Bornea of Sanman-Amoy Gym has had a stellar amateur career, beating the likes of Murodjon Akhmadaliev, a 2016 Olympic bronze medalist, Kosei Tanaka, the current WBO lightflyweight champion and KJ Cataraja, the unbeaten prospect of the ALA Boxing Gym.

“As a professional boxer, I think Majoogoen is my toughest opponent to date,” said Bornea, who is still unbeaten in eight fights with five knockout victories.
       
Majoogoen is definitely no easy prey. He is a former WBC World youth champion who has 19 wins with only one loss.
        
The Thailander is also known to putting opponents to sleep as 11 of his victories came by way of knockouts.
        
But Bornea is unfazed of the quality of the opponent he is facing and vowed to do everything in his bid to bolster his stock.

“He has a good record and a former WBC world youth champion but I will try to knock him out if the opportunity comes,” warned Bornea.
        
Against Majoogoen, Bornea stressed that it is not just about getting a win. He warned that he will be out to prove he has what it takes to face some of the biggest names in his division.
        
“I want to make a statement in the superflyweight division. I want to face the best in my division after this fight,” Bornea said.
        
Bornea’s preparations for the much-anticipated fight started last Monday where he sparred for four rounds at the Sanman Boxing Gym in General Santos.
        
“The training is going well. The heavy training will start next week. I'm excited as it will be my first time to fight a foreign opponent as a pro and the fight will be held in my country."
