ALA Boys to Fight for WBO Regional Belts

Today, ALA Boys Robert Allanic and Fernando Otik will attempt to overcome Korean foes for World Boxing Organization (WBO) regional belts. The bouts will be held at the Shinheung University Gym in Uijeongbu City, Seoul, South Korea.

Otik (6-1, 6KOs) takes on Hee-Jae cho (8-2, 4KOs) for the vacant WBO Asia-Pacific Youth super featherweight title. On the other hand, Allanic (15-3, 7KOs) will take in Chang-Jae Kwon (14-2, 10KOs) for the WBO Asia-Pacific interim bantamweight championship, .

Otik wants to claim another victim via stoppage in Hee. The power-punching super featherweight posted all his six wins via knock out. He flattened Noli Fabroa in the third round in his last ring sortie at the Tabunok Gym in Talisay City last May 1. However, Otik must be extra cautious as Hee is aching to bounce back from a defeat by unanimous decision to Byung Joo Moon on December 17, 2006.

For his part, the 21-year-old Allanic hopes to regain lost glamour after losing his last two matches. Allanic lost by retirement at the end of the eighth round in his last fight against Abner Mares of Mexico last March 2 in New Alhambra, Philadelphia. Let us hope that these ALA boys can bring home the belys.
