Press Release: May 1, 2018 By Sanman Promotions –After falling short in his US debut, Sanman Boxing Gym's Mike Plania looks to get back on track when he headlines "Magic Show" on May 19 in Polomolok, South Cotabato. Plania faltered in his first fight in the US last March 23 but put up a gallant stand before tasting a unanimous decision loss to former world champion Juan Carlos Payano.
The win earned Payano the vacant WBO Inter-Continental bantamweight belt, while Plania endured his first loss after starting his career with 14 straight wins, highlighted by seven knockout victories. Plania's opponent is yet to be determined as the full card is still being finalized, said Sanman Promotions CEO Jim Claude Manangquil. Manangquil is confident that Plania can overcome the hump following the failed US debut.
"I am confident that he can recover. He is still young and we believe in his talent," said Manangquil. The upcoming card promises to be an explosive one as former WBA World light flyweight champion Randy Petalcorin and Jake Bornea will also be seeing action. Petalcorin, who sports a 28W-2L-1D, 21KOs record, is on a five-fight winning streak. His last loss came on April 15, 2016 wherein he vowed to Omari Kimweri for the vacant WBC Silver Flyweight title. Bornea, for his part, is gunning for a third straight win. He won over Jestonie Makiputin via a second-round knockout that hiked his record to 13W-2L-0D, 7KOs.
