ARTHUR “EL MATADOR” VILLANUEVA RETURNS
Philippine Super Flyweight prospect Arthur “El Matador” Villanueva will be making his ring return in the country’s premier boxing stage Pinoy Pride on March 24, 2012.
Villanueva who has won all his 17 professional fights has KO’d 12 of his opponents without losing a single fight in his career.
“El Matador” Villanueva was scheduled to debut last year in the undercard of ALA Promotions and ABS-CBN Sports’ Pinoy Pride 9 that featured the WBO Light Flyweight Championship between now two division world champion Donnie Nietes against former champ Ramon Garcia Hirales of Mexico.
Unfortunately, with a week left before the fight, Villanueva figured in a freak accident while slicing an apple almost severing his mid finger in the process.
His much anticipated ring return nears as he is to meet number 8 Filipino Super Flyweight Rey Migreno, a veteran who has fought big names including newly crowned world champion Sonny Boy Jaro.
Migreno has likewise challenged for the WBC ABC Flyweight belt and the Interim IBF Pan Pacific Light Flyweight Title.
This will be Villanueva’s toughest test to date but Villanueva feels confident coming into the fight as he has been on a KO tear with 10 consecutive KO’s under his name.
Pinoy Pride XIII Road to Glory is an ALA Promotions and ABS-CBN Sports presentation.
Tickets are available at the ALA Promotions Head Office with numbers +63322364611, ALA Gym at the Banild Town Center, Waterfront Hotel and Casino Cebu, Mooon Café IT Park, Ila Puti IT Park, USA Sports Outlets, Bisaya Ispisyal Outlets, SM City Cebu, Pacific Mall Mandaue and Gaisano Tabunok.
