Melligen beats another Mexican,
scores 2nd round TKO in Mexico
BY NIDA BUENAFE
A knockdown in the opening round and another one in the second that prompted the referee to stop the fight. It was not a replay of the Manny Pacquiao-Ricky Hatton fight, instead, it was between Bacolod City’s very own son Mark Jason Melligen against Mexican veteran Fabian “El Lobo” Luque right in the latter’s very own home turf, Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico.
“Very impressive. Another Ilonggo-speaking boxer fighting like a veteran,” ALA Boxing Gym’s boss Tony Aldeguer told the DAILY STAR yesterday.
He said everyone in ALA was happy about Melligen’s victory and he has always believed in the Bacoleño’s potential.
