Tough fight for Bautista

By Ronnie Nathanielsz | Mar. 22, 2013 at 12:01am
Rey “Boom Boom” Bautista faces a tough fight when he defends his World Boxing Council International featherweight title against Mexico’s Jose “Negro” Ramirez in the main event of Pinoy Pride XIX on April 20 at the University of Southeastern Philippines Gym in Davao City.

Eyes on the ball. Alberto Lim of the Philippines has his eyes on the ball as he makes a return to his French opponent Ronan Joncour during the first round of 24th Mitsubishi-Lancer International Junior Tennis Championship at the Rizal Memorial Tennis Courts. Lim won, but failed to get past the second round. LINO SANTOS


It will be the first venture of ALA Promotions and partner ABS-CBN in Davao, having staged most of their fights in the successful series in Cebu City, or occasionally in Manila.

It will also mark the first major fight card in the bustling southern city since Manny Pacquiao scored a sensational first-round knockout over No.1 contender Fahprakorb Rakkiatygym in his defense of the International Boxing Federation super bantamweight title on Oct. 26, 2002.

The 25-year-old Ramirez, who has a record of 24-3 with 15 knockouts, is coming off an eighth-round unanimous decision over Sergio Lopez last Dec. 14.

Bautista, who has a record of 34-2 with 25 knockouts, will be making the first defense of his World Boxing Organization International featherweight title, which he won by a close 12-round split decision over Daniel Ruiz last October.

Although Ramirez has never fought outside of Mexico, he is not awed by the fact of having to travel to the Philippines to face Bautista, who is himself looking to put on an impressive performance and hopefully earn a rematch against world champion Daniel Ponce De Leon.
