Former IBF world flyweight champion Johnriel “Quadro Alas” Casimero will face Jonas “Zorro” Sultan for a title eliminator in the triple header main event of the Pinoy Pride 42 on Sept. 6 at the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino.

The bout is touted to be one of the most exciting matches in Philippine boxing. The winner between Sultan (13-3-0, 9 KOs), a boxer of ALA Boxing Gym, and Casimero (24-3-0,15 KOs), a two-division world champion, will become a mandatory challenger to IBF super flyweight king Jerwin Ancajas.

Michael Aldeguer, ALA Promotions president, announced the news in a press conference at the Saint Mark Hotel yesterday

“It took us a lot of time to make this decision. It’s going to be a breakout event for us and will be one of the biggest fight cards that we put up,” said Aldeguer. “It’s an all filipino war for the mandatory slot and for sure it will bring excitement to boxing fans.”

The other main event will pit IBF world junior flyweight Milan Melindo defending his title against IBO junior flyweight king Hekkie Budler of South Africa. Jason Pagara, WBO’s top lightweight contender, will also take a foreign opponent in the fight card. No name has been given at press time.
