Blow-by-Blow: GAB Youth mini fly title at stake in Iloilo
PASSI, Iloilo—The Games and Amusements Board Youth mini flyweight crown will be on the line Friday as Manny Pacquiao Presents: Blow-by-Blow takes center stage at City of Passi Arena.
John Kevien Jimenez of the Chao Sy Stable of Cebu City and Jason Brillo of MP Boxing Davao City will dispute the crown.
“I was just like these young fighters, determined and motivated to make it big,” said Pacquiao.
Jimenez is unbeaten with a 6-0 card with three knockouts while Brillo only has one blemish in his eight fights with six of his seven wins coming by way of knockouts.
The Blow-by-Blow television program aims to give Filipino boxers the chance to showcase their wares on a regular basis.
Pacquiao himself used to fight under the Blow-By-Blow banner during the 1990s and the eight-division legend believes the next Filipino ring star could come from this popular weekly primetime show.
