THAILANDER Jakkrawut Majoogoen and Cebu City-based Rhey Waminal are set to arrive in General Santos City on Wednesday, September 6, for their respective assignments in the “Road to Stardom” fight card slated Saturday at the Polomolok Gym in Polomolok, South Cotabato.
Jim Claude Manangquil, chief executive officer of Sanman Promotions, said the weigh-in for the much-anticipated card will be held on Friday at the Polomolok City Hall.
Majoogoen (19W-1L-0D, 11KOs) will be seeing action in the main event against Sanman Boxing Gym’s prized ward Jade Bornea (8W-0L-0D, 5KOs).
Bornea will be putting on the line not only his unbeaten slate but also his IBF Youth super flyweight belt.
“I’m ready to shock Bornea,” said Majoogoen in a previous interview.
The ALA Boxing Gym stalwart Waminal (11W-1L-0D, 6KOs), on the other hand, will be taking on another Sanman fighter Ben Mananquil (14W-1L-2D, 3KOs) in the co-main event.
Waminal has vowed to pull off a knockout victory, a bold declaration that didn’t sit well with Mananquil.
“I will use as my motivation what Waminal and his coach told the media that he is going to knock me out,” said Mananquil.
The undercard fights will be led by Randy Petalcorin (26W-2L-1D, 19KOs), who will battle Jetly Purisima (21W-23L-4D, 7KOs) in an eight-round duel under the 110-pound division.
