News: Devin Haney, Shiro vs. Guevara, Reymart Gaballo

Undefeated Japanese World Boxing Council light flyweight champion Ken Shiro (10-0, 5KOs) fights Mexican former world champion and number one contender Pedro Guevara (30-2-1, 17KOs), on Sunday 22nd October at the Kokugikan Arena in Tokyo, in an attractive boxing special of Teiken Boxing Promotions.

Ken Shiro will make the first defense of the title he conquered in May by defeating Mexican Ganigan "Maravilla" López.

As co main event, unbeaten Japanese puncher and WBC flyweight champion, Daigo Higa (13-0, 13KOs), stakes his crown against Frenchman Thomas Masson. He won the crown, by defeating former champ Mexico's Juan "Churritos" Hernández also in May.


UNDEFEATED Reymart “Assassin” Gaballo from General Santos City but now based in Miami, Florida, will finally make his debut in the US on November 15.

This was announced by Gaballo’s manager John Ray Manangquil though his brother Jim Claude Manangquil, CEO of Sanman Promotions.

Gaballo is facing Mexican Ernesto “Monito” Guerrero (27W-21L-0D, 19 KOs) on Nov. 15 at the Hawaii Events Center in Honolulu, Hawaii in the main event of the “Island Fight Fest” card of Filipino international boxing promoter Gabriel “Bebot” Elorde Jr.

“This is a great opportunity for Gaballo to look good in his US debut,” said Mananquil.

The 21-year old Gaballo has an unblemished record of 16 straight wins with 14 knockouts.

Gaballo thanked Sanman Promotions and Bebot Elorde for giving him a chance to be showing his talent infront of the boxing fans including the thousands of Filipinos in Hawaii.

"I am very excited and I’m ready to introduce myself in the US” said Gaballo.

Gaballo has been training at the gym of Cuban Coach Moro Fernandez in Miami since June.

In his previous outing, Gaballo stopped Jerson Luzarito by a 2nd round technical knockout last Dec. 4 at the Robinson’s Mall in Gensan.

Gaballo captured the vacant WBC Asian Boxing Council super bantamweight title by stopping Manot Comput of Thailand in the first round only last Sept. 10, 2016 in Tupi, South Cotabato.

Gaballo will be the third boxer from Sanman Boxing Gym to be making his US debut.

Harmonito Dela Torre (19W-0L, 12 KOs) and Romero “Ruthless” Duno (15W-1L-0D, 13KOs) both successfully made their US debuts. And both of them have won already their two separate fights in the US.

Manangquil is confident that Gaballlo can follow the footsteps of Duno and Dela Torre.

 “Gaballo is a great talent and he will be the next star from the Philippines,” said Manangquil, who visited Gaballo recently in Miami.

The Manangquil brothers will be in Hawaii to give their support to Gaballo.

Meanwhile, the 28-year old Guerrero scored five straight wins before he dropped his previous assignment by a unanimous decision to Ruben Villa last Sept. 22 at the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario.

Guerrero started his 5-0 winning streak by stopping Alfredo Montano via a 3rd round TKO last December 2016 in Cananea. He followed it up with back-to-back victories against Jesus Talla by a 1st round TKO on March 17 and then a UD on April 1.

Guerrero then knocked out Arcadio Salcido in the 1st round on May 13 in Agua Prieta. His last victory was a 3rd round TKO on Carlos Medina on May 27 in Cananea.

Undefeated super-lightweight prospect, 18-year old sensation, Devin "The Dream" Haney (17-0, 11 KOs), will make his return to the ring on Saturday, November 4, 2017 at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis Hotel in Atlanta.  Haney, who resides in Las Vegas, NV, will square off against Hamza Sempewo (14-8, 7 KOs) of Kampala, Uganda.   Haney vs. Sempewo, an 8-round bout in the super-lightweight division, will serve as the co-main event to heavyweight's, Devin "The General" Vargas (19-4, 7 KOs) of Toledo, Ohio, vs. Galen "Bad Boy" Brown (44-38-1, 25 KOs) of St. Joseph's, Missouri.
