Juren Labordo, another talented boxer from Bacolod City being groomed for stardom by ALA Promotions, headlines the October 12 MassKara Festival Boxing Tournament at the Bacolod Arts, Youth and Sports Center.
Labordo will fight against Valencia City’s Marzon Cabilla in the 10-round main event of the 36-round card of professional boxing to be presented by ALA Promotions in partnership with Cobra Energy Drink.
A former Palarong Pambansa medalist for Western Visayas, Laborde scored a first round knockout against Ricky Sabia of Elorde Stable-Metro Manila during the “ALA-Cobra Tunay na Lakas Boxing” July 21 at the same venue.
Three six-round battles will also pit Bacolodnon boxers against separate opponents.
Roan Servania, younger brother of WBO Asia-Pacific super bantamweight champion Genesis “Azukal” Servania, will battle Antique’s Marlon Macayan in the special attraction in 115 lbs. Roan’s first pro bout ended in unanimous decision over Jonas Zultan of Zamboanga Del Norte also last July 21.
Royroy Sumugat will face Butuan City’s Rolly Llino in 126 lbs. while John Rey Melligen will fight Valencia City’s Arnel Acebuque, also in 126 lbs.
