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.

Winning the interim title in a fight against Thailand’s Teeraphong Utaida November of last year, Melindo became the mandatory challenger to then IBF world light flyweight champion Akira Yaegashi.

Meanwhile, Budler is also coming off a successful world title stint, defeating Filipino Joey Canoy for the IBO world light flyweight crown in South Africa February of this year. Budler is currently ranked 6th in the WBC and IBF light flyweight division.  He is a former two-division IBO world champion and held the WBA Super world minimumweight champion.

[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…
