Jhack Tepora of the Omega Boxing Gym will try to keep his unbeaten streak going in the third installment of the ‘Who’s Next?’ Pro Boxing Series on Nov. 26.

Angel dela Merced, advertising manager of the International Pharmaceutical Inc. (IPI), in a recent interview said that the Omega Pro Sports International (OPSI) is looking for a foreign opponent for Tepora, who successfully defended his WBO Asia Pacific Youth super bantamweight belt in the first two editions of ‘Who’s Next?.’

In ‘Who’s Next?’ 2 Last July 30, Tepora scored a first-round technical knockout win over Bryan Capangpangan, sealing his 18th straight win spiked by 13 knockout victories.
The venue of the upcoming fight has yet to be finalized.

“We might hold it at the Robinsons Galleria Cebu just like in the first two editions,” said Dela Merced.

OPSI is also planning to include Christian Araneta and Kenny Demecillo in the fight card.

Dela Merced said one of the plans is to forge a rematch between Demecillo and Rambo Lagos.

The two boxers figured in an exciting duel last July 30 that saw Demecillo pulling off a split decision win to retain his WBF Asia-Pacific bantamweight title.

The close win improved Demecillo’s record to 11W-3L-2D-7KOs.

Just like Tepora, Araneta will also try preserve his unbeaten record against a still-undetermined opponent.

Owner of 12 victories, 10 of them by knockouts, Araneta is coming off first-round technical knockout win over Charlie Cabilla.
