MANILA, Philippines—Filipino pugilist Jonas Sultan made weight for his 10-round bantamweight tussle against Puerto Rico’s Carlos Caraballo on Sunday (Manila time) at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Sultan (17-5, 11 KOs) and Caraballo (14-0, 14 KOs) both tipped the scales at 117.6 pounds for their WBO Intercontinental title fight.


Sultan, who wasn’t able to see action in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, has won his last two fights–first stopping Salatiel Amit in seven rounds then knocking out Sharone Carter also in the seventh.

This will be Sultan’s first crack at a title since losing to Athenkosi Dumezweni of South Africa in 2019 via unanimous decision.

Sultan has been training with Joven Jimenez and former opponent Jerwin Ancajas, a man he lost to in 2018 when he challenged for the IBF super flyweight belt.

Caraballo, meanwhile, is coming off a fourth round stoppage of Leonardo Baez in March 2021.
