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.
