Trongco, Budler overweight

By MST Sports | Feb. 15, 2013 at 12:00am
Filipino challenger Renan Trongco and International Boxing Organization straw-weight champion Hekkie Buddler met face-to-face for the first time in South Africa and had a chance to size each other up prior to their title showdown on Sunday morning (Manila time).

Budler, who has a record of 21-1, with 6 knockouts and previously scored controversial and close wins over veteran Juanito Rubillar,  won the vacant title with an impressive 12-round unanimous decision over former Oriental and Pacific Boxing Federation champion Michael Landero on Sept. 24, 2011.

In his last defense, Budler scored a unanimous 12-round decision over former International Boxing Federation minimum weight champion Florante Condes on Sept. 22, 2012.

“The only thing I’m worried about now is Saturday night, that’s when it counts and that’s what I’m looking forward to,” South African boxing writer Nick Gordon quoted Budler, who was overweight by some four pounds as saying.

Trongco is overweight by eight pounds.

Budler, who will be making the second defense of his title, maintained that despite Trongco’s low IBO ranking, it’s going to be a good fight.

“He’s a strong, very tight southpaw. A hard-punching fighter and he comes to fight and comes to win,” said Budler of the Filipino. Ronnie Nathanielsz
