3 Filipino boxers to fight in China

By Lito Delos Reyes


DAVAO CITY — Three top-caliber Filipino boxers from Sanman Promotions are seeing action in China in two separate dates this July.

Filipino welterweight Adam Diu Abdulhamid (14W-8L-0D, 6KO) will have a rematch against popular Chinese fighter Youli Dong on July 19.

The 24-year old Abdulhamid, nicknamed “Big Daddy”, last defeated Dong via majority decision.

“Now it will be Dong’s chance at redemption”, said Sanman CEO Jim Claude Manangquil on Wednesday.

Also seeing action on July 20 are lightweights Rimar “Terminator” Metuda (12W-5L-1D, 7KO) and Ernie Sanchez (19W-14L-1D, 10KO).

The 25-year old Metuda will face undefeated Lei Wang who has only fought three matches but has shown good potential in the ring. Wang will be the heavy favorite but Metuda can use his experience to pull off an upset.

The 27-year old Sanchez will face undefeated lightweight sensation Yongqiang Yang of China. Sanchez has been in a losing streak and will have a chance at redemption in this match.

Yang has been undefeated in 11 fight boasting of 8 KOs in his record.

“Every invitation to fight is a big opportunity for our boxers. These boys are very dedicated in training and are hungry for bringing home the win,” said Manangquil. (PNA)
