Servania ready to clinch the Intercontinental Super Bantamweight title in much-awaited fight
ABS-CBN Sports and ALA Boxing Promotions bring the Philippines’
After scoring a quintuple win in last year’s widely watched (based on Kantar Media,Total Philippines)
Highlighting the fight is World Boxing Association (WBO) “Best Boxer of the Year for 2013” Genesis “Azukal” Servania (23 wins – 0 loss). Coming from a second-round knockout win against Panama’s Rafael Concepcion in a previous fight, the 22-year old Servania hopes to continue his winning streak as he battles Super Flyweight champion Alexander “El Explosivo” Muñoz (36-5, 28 knock-outs) of Venezuela in the main card. While Servania will fight it out with seasoned Muñoz, also a two-time WBA Bantamweight titleholder, the Pinoy fighter is confident because Servania started early and has years of training behind him.
“I was pushed by my father to get into boxing,” Servania said in an interview. “My siblings, including my sister, were already into boxing (ever since). He pushed me to be able to help in the household and to stay away from vices.” This time, Servania’s goal is to clinch the WBO Intercontinental Super Bantamweight Champion title, a step further in his career.
Servania will wave the Filipino flag together with other Pinoy boxers”: Albert “Prince” Pagara, Arthur “King” Villanueva, Mark “Magnifico”
Servania proudly said: “We’ve been watching the tapes of our opponents and have been training non-stop. We’re ready for them.”
