Servania and Melindo Head Off To The Wild Card Gym

by Ronnie Nathanielsz

Undefeated super bantamweight Genesis “Azukal" Servania (23-0, 9 KO’s), one of the most promising prospects in the ALA stable, has left for the United States along with former flyweight challenger Milan Melindo for a week’s training at Hollywood's Wild Card Gym of celebrated trainer Freddie Roach.

They were accompanied by trainer Edito “Ala” Villamor and will meet up with ALA president Michael Aldeguer, who left on January 2 to finalize the setting up of an ALA Gym in San Diego, where he plans to have some of their fighters train.

Aldeguer told us that Servania and Melindo will join him in Las Vegas where he has a scheduled meeting with Top Rank promoter Bob Arum and would find time to train at the Top Rank Gym while they are in Vegas.

Respected boxing patron Tony Aldeguer told BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard on Sunday that Servania and  Melindo will also travel to Tijuana, Mexico to train at the gym of Mexican legend Erik “El Terrible” Morales where he expects them to get some excellent sparring with tough Mexican fighters.

Aldeguer disclosed that there are three names being suggested as possible opponents for Servania, the 22 year old WBO Intercontinental super bantamweight champion,  when he headlines the March 1 fight card at the Solaire Resort Hotel and Casino. At the present they are leaning towards former WBA super flyweight champion Alexander “El Explosiivo” Munoz, the 34 year old Mexican who battled world super bantamweight champion Leo Santa Cruz  before suffering a 5th round TKO on May 2013 undercard of the Floyd Mayweather–Robert Guerrero card at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Munoz was an outstanding amateur and won the WBC 115 pound title with a twelve round unanimous decision over Japan’s unbeaten Nobuo Nashiro on May 3, 2007  and retained the belt with another unanimous twelve round decision over Katsushige Kawashina on  January 14, 2008.

Munoz lost the title by a twelve round split decision to classy Cristian Mijares  before also dropping a twelve round decision to Japan’s Koki Kameda in a clash for the vacant WBA title on December 26, 2010.

I'm very interested in seeing Melindo grow as a fighter. He's a talented young fighter. His speed was giving Estrada fits. There are a lot of good fights for Melindo at flyweight. Hope to see more of him soon.
