My apologies for not updating this blog for the past week. I was among the organizers of a recent blogging summit held in my home city and the event demanded time and much more from me. However, I have not slacked about with regards to the event of the boxing world and so far, things are going great.

Manny Pacquiao and Miguel Cotto are to clash in November 14th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. That would be nearly two weeks from now. And the first episode of the 24/7 series was a great success. I’ll write about that on a separate article.

And then there is this upcoming bout between IBF bantamweight champ Joseph Agbeko and challenger Yonnhy Perez. Agbeko (27-1, 22 KOs) is coming off a unanimous victory over hard-punching super WBC super flyweight champion Vic Darchinyan. On the other hand, Perez is undefeated in 19 fights, 14 by knockouts, with his last win over David Martinez ended in a sixth round TKO. This will be a promising fight as you have two hard hitters in the lower weights go at it for honor and glory.

Filipino fight fans! Brace yourself as three of our countrymen will battle it out a day before the Pacquiao-Cotto war. Bantamweight Federico “Magnifico” Catubay (25-15, 13 KOs), a native of Labason, Zamboanga del Norte, will face Juan Alberto “The Monster” Rosas (30-5, 25 KOs) of Mexico in a title eliminator bout for the IBF super flyweight title.

Mighty Mark Melligen (16-1, 12 KOs) of Bacolod City will slug it out against Mexican Michel Rosales (24-3, 21 KOs) in a 10-round bout in the welterweight division. Z “The Dream” Gorres (30-2-2, 17 KOs) will try to get a win over Luis Melendez (26-3-1, 21 KOs) of Colombia in a 10-round fight in the bantamweight division.

Go Filipinos!
