BOOM BOOM BACK THIS OCTOBER
One of Philippine boxing’s more recognizable names, Rey “Boom Boom” Bautista has been bearing training as he prepares himself for his anticipated ring return.
Considered as one of the more colorful names in boxing, Boom Boom has racked up 24 straight wins and was one of the toasts of Philippine boxing for his gung-ho, up-front and powerful fighting style despite his youth then.
All that effort went crashing down when he tasted his first defeat against Mexican ring monster Daniel Ponce De Leon where the young Filipino went for broke in the first round getting tagged and finished early.
A lot has happened since as he immediately made a comeback four months after fighting Antonio “Barrio” Meza winning via UD and adding 2 more victories against 2 more Mexicans Genaro Camargo and Eden Marquez before losing again to Heriberto Ruiz by decision.
It was later found out that the banger Bautista had a severe injury on his left power hand when he admitted it to his handlers. He was diagnosed with a rotten bone in his wrist. It was immediately operated on as it was at its worst stage and after 11 months of rest and rehab, he was fighting again.
Bautista slowly fought and quietly won in succession knocking-out 6 of his 7 opponents with none of them going past the 7th round only blemished by the 7th round technical decision revenge win against former oppressor Heriberto Ruiz.
Now, back in training, Bautista is booked a slot at the Pinoy Pride XVII Philippines vs The World event headlined by AJ “Bazooka” Banal vs Pungluang Sorsingyu of Thailand for the WBO World Bantamweight Championship scheduled October 20, 2012 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.
“Boom Boom is ready!” says the Filipino fighter and is gradually but confidently preparing for his next fights that he hopes would lead him to mega fight dates with current WBO Featherweight Champion Orlando Salido or a delightfully desired rematch with Daniel Ponce De Leon in the future.
Bautista will be facing former WBC Latino Super Featherweight Champion Daniel Ruiz who is also known to not back down from exchanges making this a highly anticipated busy and exciting match-up where one fighter will be left standing victorious possibly via KO.
The Philippines vs Mexico of Rey “Boom Boom” Bautista and Daniel Ruiz is part of the Pinoy Pride XVII Philippines vs The World mega-boxing presentation of ALA Promotions and ABS-BN Sports. This sporting event will be headlined by the WBO World Bantamweight Championship between WBO World # 1 and # 2 fighters AJ “Bazooka” banal of the Philippines vs Pungluang Sorsingyu of Thailand respectivel.
