champion and Brico Santig. The title fight will take place at the Elorde Ballroom along Sucat Road in Paranaque on September 7.
Trongco’s manager Gabriel “Bebot” Elorde informed the Manila Standard that Trongco had "trained hard and is fit and ready and is determined to win the title.

The taller 28 year old Chinese fighter has a record of 10-6-1 with no knockouts while the hard-hitting 24 year old Trongco has a record of 13-4 with 8 knockouts.
Trongco dropped a unanimous twelve round decision in an IBO minimumweight title fight to champion Hekkie Budler in South Africa last February 16.
The southpaw also has a unanimous decision win over Legada.
