IBF and WBO Youth Super Flyweight Champion Jade Bornea (W12 KO8 L0 D0) will face a tough opponent in Former World Champion Sonny Boy Jaro (W44 KO31 L14 D5) in a featured undercard of the Petalcorin vs. Alvarez fight on October 29 at the Solaire Resort and Casino.
“We have been building up the boxing career of Jade. Sonny Boy is a former world champion and should not be taken lightly. But we have full confidence that Jade’s skill and discipline will bring him another notable win and prepare him for a bigger fight probably a world title fight”, Sanman CEO Jim Claude Manangquil stated.
According to Bornea, “Jaro is one scary fighter and has knocked out a lot of opponents but now is my time and not his. I have been killing myself in training to make sure I improve my record and my ranking by winning this fight. I promise to entertain come October 29.”
Bornea is being managed jointly by Sanman and Amoy Boxing.
IN OTHER NEWS: Undefeated heavyweight prospect Cassius Chaney has re-upped with his long-time promoter Main Events. Now 13-0 with 7 KOs, Chaney signed with the Totowa, New Jersey-based promoter before making his pro debut on April 17, 2015. His next bout, the first under his new promotional contract, will be streamed live as part of the November 3 edition of the Golden Boy Fight Night series on Facebook from The Aviator in Brooklyn, which will be headlined by Sullivan Barrera versus "Irish" Seanie Monaghan.
Chaney has scored two early stoppages in his last fights since returning to his hometown of Baltimore, Maryland to train with Kevin Cunningham: a first round TKO on June 30, and a second round knockout before that on March 3.
Will the 31-year-old heavyweight do it again in his next bout on Saturday, November 3 at the Aviation Sports & Events Center in Brooklyn, New York? Let's just say it's a good idea to be in your seat at the opening bell and stay there.
Chaney (13-0, 7 KOs) says training at home in Baltimore makes all the difference.
"I'm not training for the knockout, really. I'm just in a better, more comfortable situation, where I'm training and learning for me. It's just happens my punches are stinging guys early. There's a difference when you're training and you know 'if it goes long, I'm good,' or 'if it ends early, that's good.'"
