Colombian boxer hinahamon si Melindo

HANDA si dating world champion Jesus Geles ng Colombia na magbalik bilang world titlist sa sandaling magharap sila ni Milan “El Metodico” Melindo ng Pilipinas.

Makasasagupa ni Geles si Melindo sa main undercard bout ng Pinoy Pride 14: Night of Champions sa Hunyo 2 sa Resorts World Manila, na itatampok din sina WBO light flyweight champion Donnie “Ahas” Nietes para sa main event laban kay Felipe Salguero.

“Melindo is known to be a technical fighter,” ani Geles sa  ulat ng Philboxing. “I am also a technical fighter, and this will be a very interesting fight.”

“I am hungry and I am preparing myself to win,” dagdag niya.

Nakuha ni Geles ang WBO junior flyweight belt noong Abril 2011, nang bakantehin ito ni dating kampeon Giovani Segura. Pero kumawala rin ito sa kanya at naagaw ni Ramon Garcia Hirales sa  huling bahagi ng buwan.

Iginiit ng 24-anyos na si Geles na “still young and hungry to retain my title.”

“At 112-pounds, I am comfortable. I learned a lot from losing my world title and it will surely help me win my fight with Melindo,” aniya. “KO (knockout) or decision, I am preparing myself to win.”

Itatampok din sa Pinoy Pride 14 card ang unbeaten na si Filipino prospect Genesis “Azukal” Servania kontra Genaro Garcia.
