Melligen set to return home
after big victory in Mexico
BY NIDA BUENAFE
The latest toast of ALA Gym, Bacolod City’s very own son Mark Jason Melligen, is arriving in the city this week to attend the wake of his grandfather, Rosendo, who died from a stroke.
His mother, Melly Francisca, said Mark Jason was so deeply saddened by the news of his grandfather’s death that they were worried it would affect his fight against Mexican Fabian Luque last Sunday.
Instead, the 23-year-old Bacoleño pug unleashed his power on Luque, floored him once in the first round, and finished the fight in the second canto with a technical knockout.
