JADE Bornea’s career is off to a sterling start. But whether he is for real or not will be known come September 9 when he battles a dangerous Thai opponent in the “Road to Stardom” at the Polomolok Gym in Polomolok, South Cotabato. The latest offering of Sanman Promotions will have Bornea taking on Thailand’s Jakkrawut Majoogoen for the IBF Youth super flyweight belt.
Bornea of Sanman-Amoy Gym is still unbeaten in eight fights with five knockout victories and his mettle will be tested by the more experienced Majoogoen, a former WBC World youth champion who sports a 19W-1L-0D, 11KOs record. Apart from the Bornea-Majoogoen duel, another fight to watch out for is the co-main event showdown between Sanman fighter Ben Mananquil and the promising Jess Rhey Waminal of the ALA Boxing Gym in Cebu City.
“This is going to be an explosive card. Majoogoen and Waminal are two quality fighters who can definitely give Bornea and Mananquil a good run for their money,” said Jim Claude “JC” Manangquil, chief executive officer of the Sanman Promotions. The Mananquil-Waminal duel will be for the OPBF Silver bantamweight belt. Mananquil has 14 victories, one loss and two draws with three knockout wins tucked under his belt. Waminal is off a to solid start as a pro as he won 11 of his first 12 fights highlighted by six knockout wins. Manangquil said the card, which is co-presented by the municipality of Polomolok headed by Mayor Honey Lumayag, will be streamed live on Facebook via the SANMAN Live.
