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.
