Bernabe Concepcion Looks To Impress at San Manuel

Bernabe Concepcion was once considered one of the top boxing prospect in the Philippines but after losing three of his last four fights he needs to get back in the winning track and will try to do so this Thursday night when he takes on Aaron Garcia of San Diego in the main event of “Pinoy Invasion” a professional boxing card presented by MP Promotions and Top Rank at the San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino in Highland, California.

And sitting at ringside on Thursday will be his mentor and promoter, Manny Pacquiao, the pound per pound boxing king who still has high hopes for Concepcion.

“I know I need to win and that I also need to look great doing it. This is a very important fight for me and for my boxing career”, said Concepcion who has been training alongside Pacquiao in the Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood, California.

Tickets are on still on sale and are available at Ticketmaster.com and the San Manuel Box Office for $50 and $90.

He was named Fighter of the Decade for the 2000s, and has been honored as the Fighter of the Year in 2006, 2008, and 2009. Without doubt, he is one of the most well-known and admired persons in the world today.

The eight bout card will included the return of two-time world challenger Concepcion, and will also former world champion, Rodel Mayol and world ranked Richie Mempranum, all of them managed by Pacquiao and his MP Promotions company.

I've always said instead of copying Pacquiao's style of fighting; Concepcion should try to copy Pacquiaos heart for fighting and develop his own style. B/c this Pinoy (Concepcion) really needs to find his inner LAPU-LAPU, before anything else. Forreal though!!!

Pacquiao's fighting style does not suit this guy, at least not yet. He needs much tuning or something new.
