Less than a week before the big night, Pinoy Pride 43 main protagonists Mark “Magnifico” Magsayo, “Prince” Albert Pagara, and Jeo “Santino” Santisima wowed fans at the Island City Mall Tagbilaran Saturday afternoon, as they performed some of their workout routines in front of a huge Boholano crowd.
Magsayo, Pagara, and Santisima looked sharp as they moved effortlessly from their circuit program to shadow boxing, down to working with the mitts together with coaches Edmund Villamor and Michael Domingo.
The members of the crowd were also able to take photos and meet their idols up close after the program, which ran for 30 minutes.
The three young prospects will headline ALA Promotions’ The Battle in Bohol this Saturday, November 25, at the Bohol Wisdom Gymnasium, along with six more bouts.
Magsayo (17-0-0, 13KOs), who headlines the card against veteran Shota Hayashi (30-6-1, 18KOs) of Japan, will be defending his WBO International Featherweight title for the third time.
Meanwhile, WBO ranked #11 Featherweight Albert Pagara (28-1-0, 19KOs) and Philippines’ #1 Super bantamweight Jeo Santisima will face Mohammed Kambuluta (16-3-0, 6KOs) of Tanzania and Kichang Kim (8-4-1, 2KOs) from Indonesia in 123-lb. non-title, 10-round bouts respectively.
Pinoy Pride 43: The Battle in Bohol tickets are available at all RD Pawnshops in Tagbilaran, Bohol Tropics Resort, Wisdom Gymnasium and Abi’s Seafoods and Grill located in Espuelas Street.
