Milan Melindo Turning Heads, Gains Top Rank Interest

By Dennis 'dSource' Guillermo

As Milan “Method Man” Melindo (25-0, 9 KOs) prepares to lead his Team Philippines squad at its team captain against a multinational contingent led by Mexico’s Juan Esquer (27-9-2, 21 KOs) on January 28, on Pinoy Pride XI card at Waterfront Casino in Cebu City, Philippines, the intelligent and calculating boxer hailing from Cagayan de Oro City will have added motivation to put forth an impressive performance.

The undefeated 23-year-old pride of Antonio L. Aldeguer's ALA Boxing stable has been turning heads in the boxing world with his impressive performances and signature cerebral, precision punching style, the latest of which is no less than Top Rank CEO Bob Arum.

Arum met with ALA Promotions President Michael Aldeguer in the Philippines this week while he was in town to finalize details for Manny Pacquiao's next fight according to my insider source.

In the meeting, Arum expressed his interest in the highly talented and promising Melindo, who is on the brink of a title shot. He is ranked in the top 10 amongst flyweight boxers in the world by all of the legitimate boxing sanctioning bodies.

ALA fighters that have been promoted by Top Rank in recent years include Z Gorres and Mark Melligen, and other Filipino boxers like Pacquiao, Nonito Donaire, Jr. and Mercito Gesta are all signed to multi-year deals by boxing's premiere promotional company.

Top Rank has an impeccable reputation and history in terms of how they develop fighters and the way they have treated Filipino boxers under their watch, unlike other major promotional companies that simply drop a fighter after a loss. Signing with Top Rank would proving Melindo the global exposure, opportunities and title shot he rightfully deserves.
