Servania, Melindo to train under Roach

By Ronnie Nathanielsz | Jan. 06, 2014 at 12:01am

 UNDEFEATED super bantamweight Genesis “Azukal” Servania (23-0, 9 KOs), one of the most promising prospects in the ALA stable, left for the United States, along with former flyweight challenger Milan Melindo for a week’s training at the Wild Card Gym of celebrated trainer Freddie Roach.

They were accompanied by trainer Edito “Ala” Villamor and will meet up with ALA president Michael Aldeguer, who left on Jan. 2 to finalize the setting up of an ALA Gym in San Diego, California, where he plans to have some of their fighters train.

Aldeguer told Manila Standard that Servania and Melindo will join him in Las Vegas, where he has a scheduled meeting with Top Ran promoter Bob Arum and would find time to train at the Top Rank Gym, while they are in Vegas.

Boxing patron Tony Aldeguer told the Manila Standard on Sunday that Servania and Melindo will also travel to Tijuana, Mexico to train at Mexican legend Erik Morales’ gym, where he expects them to get some excellent sparring with tough Mexican fighters.

Aldeguer disclosed that three names have been suggested as possible opponents for Servania, the 22-year-old World Boxing Organization Intercontinental super bantamweight champion when he headlines the March 1 fight card at the Solaire Resort Hotel and Casino.

At present, they are leaning towards former World Boxing Association super flyweight champion Alexander Munoz, the 34-year-old Mexican, who battled world super bantamweight champion Leo Santa Cruz, before suffering a fifth-round TKO on May 4, 2013 on the undercard of the Floyd Mayweather Jr.– Robert Guerrero card at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Boxing writer Brent Brookhouse reported that Santa Cruz has been one of the more visible fighters of the past couple years, no doubt in large part due to his highly unusual fight frequency as well as an appearance on CBS in his last bout.
