"Batang Maasin" boxer takes crack at international belt

By Bong Pedalino

MAASIN CITY (20 September) -- A home-grown ring fighter will travel to South Africa to try his luck at a World Boxing Council (WBC) International title in a fight scheduled on Friday, September 21.

Alex Aroy, dubbed "Batang Maasin" and "Maasin Bomber" will face "WBC International minimumweight champion Zukisani Kwayiba in a 12-round bout on September 21, 2007, at the Carousel Hotel and Casino in Temba, South Africa," said Mayor Maloney Samaco in his "Sports Roundup" column in the latest issue of a local weekly.

It will not be an easy outing for the Maasin boxing sensation, whose opponent has been billed as "one of the most exciting propects to come out of Eastern Cape, South Africa in recent years" Samaco wrote in quotes, apparently reflecting the sentiments of top analysts.

Kwayiba, nicknamed "Troublemaker", has been undefeated in all the nine professional fights he had undergone, seven among those victories coming by way of knockout.

He was also the conqueror of Filipino boxer Gabriel Pumar of Lapu-Lapu City, his record showed, and was highly successful in his first title defense versus fellow South African Sithembile Kibiti by a first-round technical knock-out (TKO). (PIA Southern Leyte) [top]
