IBF Intercontinental featherweight champion Albert Pagara is not looking to let go of his title any time soon.
“Prince” Albert (23-0, with 16 victories by knockout) will be defending his title against Mexico’s Jesus Rios as the main attraction for Pinoy Pride 32: Duel in Dubai 2 on Friday, August 7th.
Speaking to Dyan Castillejo of ABS-CBN News, the 21-year old fighter has shown the same air of confidence he had since the beginning of camp.
“Makuha ko sa timing, focus lang sa ibabaw ng ring, makuha din yan ng knock out. Darating din yan. Hindi ko ipapaagaw ang belt ko. I’m still undefeated”.
Albert will be joined by his elder brother Jason as the co-headliner, and will face another Mexican, Ramiro Alcaraz. It is the first time the Pagara brothers will be fighting outside the Philippines.
Catch Pinoy Pride 32: Duel in Dubai 2 on Friday, August 7th, 11pm on Sky Cable pay-per-view, and on Sunday, August 9th, 10am, on ABS-CBN Channel 2.
