Two undercard bouts can very well steal the show from the main event  where Rey “Boom Boom” Bautista will defend his WBO Intercontinental featherweight title against tough Mexican Jose Ramirez in “Pinoy Pride XIX – The Mexican Invasion”  at the University of Southeastern Philippines Gym in  Davao City on Saturday.

The ten round battle between Oriental Pacific Boxing Federation flyweight champion Rocky “Road Warrior” Fuentes and Mexican slugger Juan Kantun and the OPBF title fight between OPBF super flyweight champion Arthur “El Matador” Villanueva and challenger Marco Demecillo in a clash of undefeated hard hitters could turn into action-packed bouts that  fans usually go for.

The “Pinoy  Pride XIX” card will be telecast on Sunday  at 10:15 a.m. over Channel 2 with a replay on Studio 23 and a telecast  over The Filipino Channel.

The 27 year old Fuentes who has a record of 34-6-2 with 20 knockouts is ranked No. 2 by the WBA, No. 3 by the WBC, No. 5 by the WBO and No. 7 by the IBF and has successfully defended his title six times after winning it with a twelve round majority decision over Masafumi Okuba on March 9, 2010.

In his last title defense on December 18, 2012 Fuentes scored a unanimous twelve round decision over Yuki Nasu.

Kantun has a record 20-3-3 with 15 knockouts and is known for his go-for- broke style besides being quick.

The 24 year old Villanueva who is undefeated with a 20-0, 11 KO record puts his title on the line against another undefeated fighter in Demecillo who has a record of 18-0-1 with 14 knockouts.

Villanieva won the OPBF title by a twelve round unanimous decision in a battle royale with Japan’s Taiki Eto last December in which Eto dropped Villanueva twice but was himself sent crashing to the canvas once.

The 22 year old Demecillo, on the other hand has beaten 9 of his last 10 opponents inside the distance and is coming off a 3rd round knockout of Jessie Tuyor last December 2 with both young prospects guaranteeing a barn-burner.
