Mapapasabak sina Philippine welterweight titlist Jayar Inson at Philippine flyweight champion Genesis Libranza sa undercard ng depensa ni WBA welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao kay four-division titlist Adrien Broner sa Enero 19 sa Las Vegas, Nevada sa United States.

“Welterweight Jayar Inson and flyweight Genisis Libranza make their U.S. debuts on the big stage as part of the non-televised undercard headlined their fellow Filipino countryman Manny Pacquiao on Saturday, January 19 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas,” ayon sa ulat ng Fightnews.com.

“Inson (18-1, 12 KOs) will battle in an eight-round welterweight match, while Libranza (17-1, 10 KOs) takes on Nicaragua’s Carlos Buitrago (30-4-1, 17 KOs) in an eight-round flyweight match as the two fighters from Davao City, Philippines look to continue their respective win streaks,” dagdag sa ulat.

Mabigat ang makakalaban ni Libranza na si four-time world title challenger Buitrago na minsang lumaban sa Pilipinas at tumabla kay ex-WBO minimumweight champion Merlito Sabillo noong Enero 30, 2013 sa Araneta Coliseum, Cubao, Quezon City.

Bukod kina Pacquiao, Inson at Libranza, idedepensa rin ng Pilipinong si Jhack Tepora ang kanyang interim WBA

featherweight title kay two-division world champion Hugo Ruiz ng Mexico.
