5 Titles Up for Grab at the OPBF Convention Fight Night in Palawan

OPBF Brings Night of Champions in Palawan 


OPBF Convention Fight Night in Palawan


With exactly one week away from the much-awaited OPBF fight night which will be held on the second day of the 55th OPBF convention, fighters get ready for their chance to showcase their skills in front of some of the most important figures in boxing including WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman.

OPBF is one of the 11 continental federations comprising the WBC. The members of the OPBF regional groups are Australia, Fiji, Guam, Hawaii, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Mongolia, New Zealand, PAMA, Republic of China, Samoa, Taiwan, Thailand, Tonga and the Philippines.

Newly named president of the OPBF  Baham Mitra will try to impress visitors and participants as he showcases not only a great boxing night but as well as the beauty of his hometown, Palawan were he previously served as a Governor.

Brico Santig of Highland Boxing, Gerry Penalosa and  Ryuta Kato of United Boxing Promotion will be co-promoting the fight night that will headline the nephew of the former two-division boxing champ Gerry Penalosa.


Carlo Caesar Penalosa vs Salatiel Amit

For the vacant WBC Asian Boxing Council Silver Flyweight Title.

Nickname too sharp, the 24-year-old nephew of Gerry Penalosa, Carlo Caaesar is looking for a breakout performance as he contends for a belt for the very first time in his career.

Currently, with 9 wins and only 1 defeat he will be put to a test against a fighter who is looking to turned around his career after dropping 2 of his last three fights including TKO losses to Froilan Saludar and Jonathan Taconing. Salatiel Amit Alyas Pakyaw at 25  got 10 wins, 3 losses and 2 draws is not a bad record considering the fighters who defeated him are two of the best boxers in the Philippines.



Omrri Bolivar vs Jelbirt Gomera 

For the interim OPBF Silver Featherweight Title. 

The Philippines' Jelbirth Gomera should be thankful that he is getting a crack at the featherweight title as well as the opportunity to defend the Philippine flag as he faces an undefeated 27-year old Venezuelan. Jelbirth Gomera, a product of General Santos City had suffered three consecutive heartwrenching decision losses in Japan, Korea and recently in the Philippines. A win against Omrii Bolivar (5-0) would help rejuvenate his career.

Also on the card are two female championship bouts including Yuko Henzan vs Phannaluk Kongsang for the vacant OPBF Female Bantamweight Title and Erika Hanawa vs Sornsawan Khunmarn for the interim OPBF Female Minimumweight Title.

ABF Flyweight championship will also be on the line. 

Other bouts will include a Flyweight battle between  Jeronil Borres vs Robert Onggocan and super featherweight tussle between Ryan James Racaza vs  Junar Adante.

Powcast.net will be in the ringside as this happens and we will be calling the action live in our official Facebook page.

Details on Kiefer Ravena's PBA Salary Revealed, 350,000 a Month!

It's huge! Kiefer Ravena's salary means a lot is expected from him

If NLEX could offer him more then maybe they would but for now, Keifer Ravena would have to settle for a maximum rookie salary that's worth 8.5 million in three years.

As per our source, his salary on a monthly basis will be at  P150,000 a month for the first year. Then will go to P225,000 and the last year would be at  P350,000. The salary isn't the highest as Terrence Romeo and JunMar Fajardo, two of the biggest names in the PBA is getting more or less half a million every month.








At 24 years old, however, the former Ateneo star is only one of the two players this rookie class who's getting a max deal, one of which is Rookie Christian Standhardinger.
