Handang-handa na si world rated Randy Petalcorin ng Pilipinas na hablutin ang WBA interim light flyweight title sa pagkasa kay Panamanian Walter Tello sa Agosto 26 sa Shanghai, China.
“Professional Boxing is making a rapid move in Mainland China with the first promotion of Li Sheng Seca Promotions, Edmund Ye Chu and Top Rank with their first promotion in Shanghai, China on August 26th with a world championship fight card at the state of the art new Mercedes Benz Arena,” ayon sa ulat ng Fightnews.com. “The headliner is a WBA interim light flyweight world title fight between WBA No. 2 Randy Petalcorin from Yarraville, Victoria, Australia, and No. 6 rated Walter Tello from Puerto Armuelles, Panama.”
Mas beterano si Tello kay Petalcorin dahil tatlong beses na itong kumasa sa world title bout samantalang unang pagkakataon ito ng Pinoy boxer na nakabase ngayon sa Australia sa kampeonatong pandaigdig.
“This matchup on paper looks very interesting as Tello (20-7, 8 KOs) brings big time experience already having fought for three world titles having challenged WBO champion Manuel “Pingo” Vargas in 2009, WBA champion Giovani Segura in 2010, and most recently WBA champion Alberto Rossel in 2013 losing a close points decision,” ayon pa sa ulat.
