Friday, March 15, 2013
TEN fights will be featured in the Smokerfight 11-The Inevitable set at 6 p.m. Saturday at the Kadayawan Hall of NCCC Mall Davao.
Organizer Dr. Vincent Vicente, who guested at the Davao Sportswriters Association (DSA) Forum at Dexer's Pizza Stadium in Matina on Thursday, said multi-titled Rudy Tacogue of Davao City will play Rockytune Batolbatol in the 145 pounds division.
The other bouts pit Serg Saymon against John Myron Basil (125 lbs), Calixto Perkins vs John Paul del Valles (145 lbs), Jhun del Valle vs Dante Reyes Madrideo (125 lbs), Sal Demecillo vs Ranz Jairoe Somo Samson (155 lbs), Jay Solana vs Jose Carlo Castillo Laurel (115 lbs), Ruben Lanaza vs Venson Deleporre (125 lbs), Raymund Lacuna vs James Laroza (205 lbs), Ranniel Zinampan vs Adrian Antipasado (160 lbs) and Jeco Constantino vs Marlon Parcon (125 lbs).
Vicente said, "These are all mixed martial arts amateurs who want to build up their confidence to become professional fighters in the future."
Since the event is designed for amateurs, they prohibit the use of elbow and knee to the face as fighters may be more prone to uncalled for injuries.
"Amateurs still lack control over the use of their hands and feet. We don't want them to get unecessary injuries when they compete in the Smokerfight 11," Vicente added. (MLSA)
