Bernabe Concepcion Returns, 10/27 Against Garcia

By Ryan Maquiñana

After a disappointing showing in Las Vegas last May, former world title challenger Bernabe Concepcion will meet fellow featherweight Aaron Garcia on Oct. 27 at San Manuel Casino in San Bernardino, Calif., according to Garcia’s manager, Vince Parra.

Concepcion (28-5-1, 15 KOs), originally from Rizal, Philippines, is at the crossroads after consecutive televised losses to then WBO 126-lbs. champ Juan Manuel Lopez on Showtime and veteran Juan Carlos Martinez on ESPN2.

Garcia (10-2-2, 2 KOs), from Vista, Calif., is coming off two strong outings, the first being an upset of recent Teon Kennedy conqueror Alejandro Lopez in February and a majority decision loss to the unbeaten Abraham Lopez (no relation) that many observers felt could have gone either way.

Concepcion my have the style of fighting like Pacquiao, but he still yet has to find his own heart in boxing. Barnabe should copy Pacquiao's heart for boxing, instead of Pacquiao's boxing style. And I thought it was Mikey Garcia…
