Pinoy Pride 42 will feature current IBF world light flyweight champion Milan “El Metodico” Melindo’s first title defense against IBO world light flyweight champion Hekkie “The Hexecutioner” Budler.

[QUOTE=BigZ44;17941531]Wait, is this an eliminator at bantam or super fly? This says bantam, but both guys are in the top 10 in the superfly rankings. Either way, I favor Casimero in this fight. Don't know how much I would like…

Wait, is this an eliminator at bantam or super fly? This says bantam, but both guys are in the top 10 in the superfly rankings. Either way, I favor Casimero in this fight. Don't know how much I would like…
