MASUSUBOK ang katatagan ni dating WBO Asia Pacific at kasalukuyang Philippine welterweight titlist Jayar Imson kay four-time Australian Victorian champion Terry Tzouramanis ng Australia sa undercard ng “Fight of Champions” card sa Axiata Arena sa Hulyo 15 sa Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Magsasagupa sina Imson at Tzouramanis sa loob ng walong rounds bilang undercard ng pagdedepensa ni WBA welterweight champion Lucas Matthysse ng Argentina kay eight-division world titlist Manny Pacquiao na isa ring Pilipino.
Sinasanay si Inson ng trainer ni Pacquiao na si Nonoy Neri at may magandang kartada na 16 panalo, 1 talo na may 11 pagwawagi sa knockouts kumpara kay Tzouramanis na may rekord na 19-3-3 na may 3 panalo lamang sa knockouts.
“Terry Tzouramanis is an aggressive fan friendly boxer who always gives 100 percent in every fight. We would like to thank MP Promotions matchmaker Sean Gibbons and Senator Manny Pacquiao for the opportunity to fight on a world wide audience on a big stage,” ayon sa promoter ni Tzouramanis na si Peter Maniatis. “Also Ben Chua and myself have been in Terry’s corner for all of his 25 professional bouts which I have promoted and looking forward to being in KL for Terry again.”
“We are very appreciative and excited about the opportunity to fight Jay-ar Inson on July 15th in Kuala Lumpur. Thank you to Sean Gibbons and Peter Maniatis,” ayon naman kay Chua. “It will be a fantastic experience for Terry to compete in such a high profile event. With that said, we are not travelling to Kuala Lumpur merely for the experience. Our primary focus is to win the fight.”
