Elorde holiday fight card up

/ 01:10 AM December 21, 2014

JOHNNY Elorde Management International in cooperation with the Rotary Club of Manila 101 presents another edition of Boxing Kontra Droga as its Christmas Presentation tonight at the grand ballroom of Elorde Sports Center.

Fights start at 6 p.m.

Dubbed the “Battle of Little Giants,” the card will feature world rated Jonathan Taconing against former WBO Asia Pacific minimumweight champion Mikwanto Raknafa of Indonesia in the main event.

A win in this bout by Taconing will earn him the chance to participate in the elimination round set by the World Boxing Council (WBC) during the recent convention in Las Vegas.


He may either face Ganigan Lopez or former world light flyweight champion Adrian Hernandez. The winner will then be the mandatory challenger to the Pedro Guevarra-Akira Yaegashi championship on Dec. 30 in Japan.

Taconing, who once fought for the WBC title and lost in Thailand against Kompayak Porpramook two years ago, is all set to fight again for a world crown. However, he has to pass this tough battle against Raknafa, who promised to spoil Taconing’s bid for the championship.

In the supporting mainer, PH featherweight champion Vinvin Rufino battles Rex Olisa.
