MANILA, Philippines -- Filipino Carlo "Too Sharp" Pe?alosa, 26, and his more experienced Mexican opponent Maximino "Max" Flores, 28, met for the very first time ahead of their collision for the vacant IBO Flyweight World Title.
Their serious, yet friendly encounter transpired during a well-attended presscon hosted by Carlo's uncle and promoter two-time world champion Gerry Pe?alosa on Tuesday afternoon at the Amelie Hotel in Malate, Metro Manila.
Their rumble is scheduled to unfold this coming Sunday, August 25, at the TV5 Studios in Quezon City, Metro Manila, live on ESPN5; a fierce battle that might produce yet another world champion for the Philippines.
Will the tough and taller Max Flores (24-4-1, 17 KO's) overpower the less-tested Carlo Pe?alosa (14-1, 7 KO's), teaching him a boxing lesson, breaking apart his childhood dreams of becoming a champion of the world, same as his two uncles, Gerry and Dodie Boy, did years ago?
Or will the Mexican Max Flores be forced to fly back to the land of M?rquez and Morales beaten up and badly bruised from Pe?alosa's big "chingazos?"
Boxing fans may attend the battle at TV5 Studios in Novaliches, Quezon City; or watch it live on ESPN5 Philippines, or catch it live online on ESPN5.com.
The card's bout sheet includes the two exciting grand finales of GerryPens' popular UBS Ultimate Boxing Series, the successful boxing reality show that according to ESPN5's Michael "Chu" Villar, has broken ratings on ESPN5 Philippines.
Carlo "Too Sharp" Pe?alosa vs Maximino "Max" Flores for the vacant IBO Flyweight World Title this coming Sunday August 25 is a production of Gerry Pe?alosa's Gerrypens Promotions with the assistance GerryPens' Golden Girl Cathrina Gayos, in association with ESPN5 Philippines.
The LIVE telecast starts at 1 PM (Philippines Time)
