MAASIN CITY – A hero’s welcome awaits Jason Pagara and his brother Prince Albert for their victory in Pinoy Pride 32:  Duel in Dubai 2 at the Dubai World Trade Center on August 7.

The Pagara brothers were expected to come home before the fiesta on Aug. 15 in honor of the city’s patron Immaculate Concepcion.

“It’s but fitting that they be accorded a hero’s welcome and a motorcade around the city,” said  Maasin City Mayor Maloney Samaco.

The boxers were born in Lib-og village this city.

Albert, the younger Pagara started out as an amateur boxer under tutelage of Maasin Sports Council headed then by Samaco.
