China’s Wang Xin Hua is ready for his battle against Filipino southpaw Renan Trongco for the vacant WBC Intercontinental flyweight title at the Elorde Ballroom along Sucat Road in Paranaque on September 7. Trongco’s manager Gabriel “Bebot” Elorde informed the Manila Standard that the Chinese will be assisted by trainer Alan Alegria, a former Philippine champion and Brico Santig.
Elorde said Wang Xin Hua beat Filipino Lionel Legada by a six round split decision last June 28 at the World Trade Center in Dubai on the undercard of Denver Cuello’s minimumweight title fight against Xiong Zhao Zhong. The 28 year old Chinese fighter has a record of 10-6-1 with no knockouts while the 24 year old Trongco has a record of 13-4 with 8 knockouts. Trongco dropped a unanimous twelve round decision in an IBO minimum weight title fight to champion Hekkie Budler in South Africa last February 16. Tags: boxing
