Milan Melindo trains for his upcoming title bout against Thailand's Fahlan Sakheerin Jr.
ALA Boxing standout Milan "El Metodico" Melindo will be getting a shot at bringing yet another boxing world title to the Philippines when he meets Thailand's Fahlan Sakheerin Jr. for the interim IBF world light flyweight championship at Pinoy Pride 39 this coming November.
With over a month to go before fight night, the Cagayan de Oro-born slugger is making sure that he comes in to his third world title opportunity well prepared.
The 28-year old Melindo is riding a two fight winning streak, and is coming off a technical decision win over Mexican Maximino "Max" Flores at Pinoy Pride 36 in Bacolod back in May. He will be headlining a very stacked Pinoy Pride 39 card that will likely serve as ALA Boxing's year-ending event.
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!
