A fourth UBO title fight has been added to the big Thursday Night Fights II extravaganza on April 26 at the Kowloon Bay International Trade & Exhibition Centre in Hong Kong, as Filipinos Randy Petalcorin (16-1, 13 KOs) and Noli Morales (9-1, 3 KOs) will clash for the vacant Universal Boxing Organization™ World Junior Flyweight title.  


Already on the card is Rex Tso vs. Pongpan Patanakan Gym for the Asia Pacific Super Flyweight crown, Lawrence Tauasa vs. TBA for the International Heavyweight title, and Lefoumbou Ngoma vs. Plaisakda Singwancha for the Inter-Continental Light Heavyweight championship.

Randy Petalcorin is only 20 years old, but with thirteen of his sixteen victories coming inside the distance he is a world-class puncher with five title fights already under his belt, and has already won several regional titles since turning professional less than three years ago.

In 2010 Petalcorin won the Philippines Mindanao Boxing Federation and the National Philippines titles, and last year he captured a WBC regional strap and the PABA championship. The fight against fellow countryman Morales will be his first crack at a world title.

A southpaw like Petalcorin, Noli Morales is five years older at 25 and has been a pro since 2007. He won the Philippines national title at Minimumweight in 2010, and suffered his sole defeat the following year when he travelled to Thailand for a WBC regional title-challenge against the 15-0 Wanheng Menayothin, dropping a technical decision after six rounds.

Since the bout in Thailand, which can hardly be considered a major setback, Morales has come back with two victories, winning the Philippines Luzon Professional Boxing Association belt in the process. He will also be entering his first World championship contest.

Thursday Night Fights II, featuring no less than four UBO title fights and without a doubt the most significant professional boxing show ever in Hong Kong, is presented by DEF Promotions in cooperation with J & J Promotions.
