Doliguez fights Mexican in Marquez, Bradley card
Power-puncher Jun “Hercules” Doliguez will have the chance to show his true worth to the world as he battles Mexican veteran Enrique Quevedo under the Juan Manuel Marquez-Timothy Bradley card on Oct. 12 at Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas.
Still unbeaten in 18 fights (16-0-2, 12 KOs), the 22-year-old Doliguez last fought another Mexican Ruben Tamayo (22-4-3) to a draw at Merida, Yucatan, Mexico. The fight against Quevedo is part of Saved by the Bell Promotions agreement with Fernando Beltran’s Zanfer Promotions.
“Doliguez is the lone Filipino fighter in the Marquez-Bradley fight,” said SBB head Elmer Anuran. SBB partnered with Zanfer to handle Doliguez’s international career.
The 22-year-old Doliguez, like legend Manny Pacquiao, hails from Sarangani Province. The 5-foot-6 Doliguez, who owns the WBO Oriental featherweight crown, is training under Benny dela Peña and assistant trainer Dagul Martinez at Freddie Roach’s Wildcard Gym in Hollywood.
“Jun is doing very, very good in preparations against Quevedo. I was told by Benny that some of his spar mates could not handle his power and decided to quit,” said Anuran.
