Pagara brothers, Cataraja join stacked Pinoy Pride 39 card
Albert Pagara, Jason Pagara, and KJ Cataraja will all be part of a stacked Pinoy Pride 39 card in Cebu this November.

After two successful shows in the United States, the Pinoy Pride series heads back home to Cebu to end the year with a bang. 

As announced earlier, Pinoy Pride 39 will head back to Cebu, and will be headlined by an interim IBF light flyweight championship bout between ALA Boxing's own Milan "El Metodico" Melindo and Thailand's Teerapong "Fahlan Sakeerin Jr." Uthaida. 

Joining Melindo on the card will be the return of brothers "Prince" Albert Pagara and Jason "El Niño" Pagara. 

Albert will look to bounce back after suffering his first career loss at the hands of world title contender Cesar Juarez at Pinoy Pride 37 last July, while older brother Jason picked up his 12th straight win on the same card. 

A handful of rising stars from the ALA Boxing stable will also see action on Pinoy Pride 38, namely unbeaten Kevin Jake "KJ" Cataraja, Jeo "Santino" Santisima, and Jimmy "Popeye" Paypa. 

Unbeaten in four pro fights, Cataraja is coming off a fourth round TKO win over Thailand's Wanchai Nianghansa in Bacolod back in May. 

In his last outing, Santisima stopped Indonesian Junior Bajawa in the main event of ALA Boxing's Idol 2 in Cebu back in July. 

Paypa is coming off a WBO Oriental super bantamweight title win over Bernabe Concepcion in Manila back in March. 

No opponents have been named for the Pagaras and the other ALA boxers, but with less than two months to go before fight night, expect announcements to be made soon. 

 

Pinoy Pride 39 takes place on Saturday, November 26 at the Cebu Coliseum in Cebu City. Catch the telecast on ABS-CBN channel 2 and ABS-CBN S+A channel 23!
