Press Release: August 29, 2018 (Originally released August 28, 2018) by Sanman Promotions – Sanman Promotions fast rising prospect “Magic” Mike Plania W15 L1 D0 will have a chance at grabbing a WBC Asian Super Bantamweight Belt when he faces fellow Filipino fighter Angelito Merin on September 9, 2018 in Polomolok, South Cotabato.
Plania is a multi-medalled member of the Philippine Amateur Boxing Team and has fought in Ukraine for the AIBA World Youth Tournament. He has also won several gold medals in national competitions. When he was in Miami, we was paired as sparring partner to Cuban Champ Guillermo Rigondeaux. He has earned the attention of the international boxing media when he knocked down former world champion Juan Carlos Payano but lost via decision.
“I was very upset with the Payano fight. I thought I won but it was close. Payano had the experience advantage. It was unlucky to have my record tarnished in a fight where I knocked down my opponent. But I am a warrior, we all loss at some point but we should move on and keep on winning till we get what we want. I want to be a world champion and I wont stop chasing that dream. I am in great shape now. I am sparring with Marjohn Yap and Shohei Omori. I am determined to take that belt. I need this win to get the bigger fights in my division. I am always grateful to my manager JC Manangquil of Sanman Promotions ”, Plania said.
According to Sanman honcho Jim Calude Manangquil, it is their goal to make more world champions from their stable. They currently have WBA Interim Bantamweight Champion Raymart Gaballo, highly rated contender Romero Duno, and former WBA interim Light Flyweight Champion Randy Petalcorin who bear the banner of Sanman Promotions.
