Menayothin-Galero WBC Title Clash Finalized, Feb. 5

By Rey Danseco
 
It’s a done deal.
 
WBC minimumweight champion Wanheng Menayothin (36-0, 12 KOs) will put his title for the first time on the line against 12th ranked undefeated contender Jeffrey “Venum” Galero (11-0, 5 KOs) of the Philippines on Feb. 5 in Nakhon Sawan, Thailand.
 
Galero and his manager Cayetano “Jun” Gandeza, Jr.’s Kambal Kamao Boxing Promotions of Lipa City, Batangas signed the dotted line sometime in the first week of the year.
 
The boxing authority in the Philippines, the Games and Amusements Board (GAB) stamped the fight contract on January 8.
 
Menayothin dethroned Mexican Oswaldo Novoa (14-5-1) with TKO in the 9th round on Nov. 6 in Chonburi, Thailand.
 
“Galero’s fight with Menayothin for the WBC minimum weight title fight is already done (deal),” Gandeza told this writer today.
 
“When we received the offer of course we are so happy because everyone’s dream is to fight for the World tittle and the chance was presented to us, we right away had a meeting and discuss things and we all agreed for that chance.”
 
Galero is a 24-year-old native of Misamis Oriental in Northern Mindanao, Philippines and one of the up-and-coming fighters out of Gandeza’s Kambal Kamao Boxing Stable.
