The Palicte vs Rodriguez undercard bouts gives hard core fight fans a chance to size up other prospects.
Jerwin Ancajas (13-1-1, 5 KOs) will fight John Mark Bautista (10-6-1, 4 KOs) in a 10-round super flyweight match. Ancajas will be eager to bounce back after he suffered his first defeat in a tough majority decision loss to another talented prospect, Mark Anthony Geraldo last March in Cebu.
Undefeated Aston Palicte (9-0-0, 7 KOs), Vincent’s younger brother, will face by Mark Joseph Costa (4-5-2, 1 KO), known for being the last opponent of the late Karlo Maquinto. Jerson Luzarito (6-1-1) fights Marzon Cabilla (9-7) in another ten rounder.
Reigning Philippine junior welterweight champion Adones ‘The Undertaker’ Cabalquinto (12-0-0, 8 KOs) of Top Contender Boxing Gym will engage in a 10-round non-title fight against Jaypee Ignacio of Elorde Gilmore, Quezon City. Cabalquinto gave Cebu fans a ring war to remember when he beat Dan Nazareno last March by twelve round unanimous decision at the Lapu-lapu City Hoops Dome.
A special attraction will be the fight between the young and unbeaten Joebert Alvarez (10-0-0, 4 KOs) against the tough veteran Nelson Llanos (22-28-3, 9 KO’s). Alvarez was one of the standouts in the boxing reality show “Buhay Boksingero”.
