Rey "Boom Boom" Bautista will face tough Sergio "El Cuate" Villanueva of Mexico in Bautista's comeback fight on the undercard of WBO light flyweight champion Donnie Nietes' title defense against mandatory challenger Moises Fuentes of Mexico at the Mall of Asia Arena on May 10.
ALA Promotions president told BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard that Bautista has been training hard and is determined to prove that his career is not finished.
One of the more exciting fighters in the country, Bautista lost his WBO International featherweight title by a twelve round split decision to rugged Jose Ramirez of Mexico on April 20, 2013 and is looking to stage a comeback against Villanueva who has a solid record of 26-3-2 with 13 knockouts.
Bautista earlier won the WBO International title with a twelve round split decision over rugged Daniel Ruiz on October 20, 2012.
Villanueva is coming off a unanimous ten round decision over Fabian Vladimir Rios of Mexico last July 19 after losing by an 8th round TKO in a WBC World Youth featherweight title fight against Adrian Hernandez on May 19, 2012.
He previously lost by a 7th round TKO to undefeated Puerto Rican Jose "Sniper" Pedraza who had a record of 13-0 with 8 knockouts on June 8, 2013. Tags: Rey Bautista
