ALA Boxing Promotions president and CEO Michael Aldeguer believes that unbeaten star "Prince" Albert Pagara's upcoming bout against the very tough Cesar "Corazon" Juarez isn't going to be a walk in the park for the Pinoy boxer. 

In fact, they Aldeguer believes that this is going to be a high-risk bout for Pagara, but one that the talented 22-year old needs to go through to see where he stands in the world of boxing. 

"We really want to test and see how far he can go," Aldeguer said via a report from ABS-CBN News' Dyan Castillejo. 

Throughout the whole fight camp, emphasis was put on Pagara's stamina, endurance, and footwork, after seeing how Juarez brought it against world champion Nonito Donaire back in December. According to Pagara's head coach Edmund Villamor, they'll plan to go about this fight technically. 

"Tignan namin sa unang mga round kung ano ang estilo ni Juarez. Kailangan talaga, technical." 

For his part, Pagara, as always, remains confident and unfazed ahead of arguably his toughest challenge yet. 

"Wala akong takot. Basta laban. Kaya natin 'to."
