/ 05:25 AM June 09, 2019

Ifugao boxing prospect Carl Jammes Martin will be making his second televised bout Sunday night at the TV5 Studios in Novaliches, Quezon City.

The 20-year-old Martin will battle Yuttichai Wannawong of Thailand in a 10-round nontitle fight, his second bout in Manila after campaigning mostly up north.


Dubbed “Wonder Boy” by his followers, Martin holds an unblemished 12-0 record, 11 ending via knockout.

Martin’s last fight was held Feb. 16 at SM Skydome, where he stopped Wannawong’s compatriot, Petchorchae Kokietgym, inside three rounds in his Manila ring debut.

“I had many mistakes in thet fight that I want to correct in this next bout,” said Martin who is trained by his father Abel, in Filipino.

While Wannawong, who is taller than Martin by four inches, has nine losses in his 18-fight record, he is still a dangerous foe as he has tallied eight stoppages in nine victories.
