ALA Promotions, headed by its president Michael Aldeguer, plans a big leap for its roster of talented fighters, following its staging of  “Pinoy Pride XV,” one of the most exciting fight cards in recent months at the Waterfront Hotel and Casino, held in cooperation with ABS-CBN.

Junior welterweight Jason Pagara, who showed a remarkable change from the fighter, who lost a lopsided 10-round decision to rugged Mexican Rosbel Montoya last September, scored a sixth-round technical knockout in their rematch telecast last Sunday.

Pagara and promising super bantamweight Genesis Servania are being lined up for bigger fights and a training camp in San Francisco.

Aldeguer told the Manila Standard that he had spoken to Robert Garcia, who handles super bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire Jr., although he had some concern over the number of fighters the trainer currently handles, including Kelly Pavlik, Marcus Maidana and his brother Mikey Garcia, among others.

Aldeguer indicated that Garcia had promised to try and manage his time to accommodate the ALA fighters and said his father, who is also a trainer, can help out.

The ALA Promotions president revealed that they want to set up a camp there and will hold further discussions with Garcia in October after the world bantamweight title fight of AJ “Bazooka” Banal on Oct. 20.

Aldeguer said the main advantage of training in the US is the quality sparring the Filipino fighters can get, especially for regional champions like 140-pound Pagara, who finds it difficult to get good sparmates.

Aside from Servania and Pagara, Aldeguer is also planning to have Banal and world-rated Milan Melindo join the training camp in the US.

Huh? Wasn't there a video about a year or 2 ago when ALA was calling Robert about this? Came only to fruition this time?

So far I think ALA fighters needed good conditioning coach first second is the trainer because most of them starts to fade in the middle rounds.

Garcia is a good choice. But can he give them all the necessary attention?
