CEBU CITY, Philippines — Omega Boxing Gym stalwarts and their respective opponents passed the official weigh-in for “Kumbati 11” slated tomorrow, Friday, October 22, 2021, at the IPI compound in Mandaue City.

The four-bout fight card will be headlined by Christian “The Bomb” Araneta trading leathers with Arnold Garde.

Araneta tipped the weighing scales at 111.8-pounds while Garde weighed in at 112.6lbs for their 10-round non-title bout.

The 26-year old Araneta (20-2, 16KOs) of Borbon town, northern Cebu will try to duplicate his July 16 knockout victory against Richard Claveras in Talisay City, south Cebu.

This time, he faces Garde (10-10-3, 4KOs) who has lost four bouts since 2019.

Meanwhile, Araneta’s stablemate Tomjune “War Dog” Mangubat and his opponent Allan Villanueva of Big Yellow Boxing Gym also passed the weigh-in.

Mangubat (14-2-1,11KOs) weighed in at 133lbs while Villanueva (11-1,8KOs) was slightly heavier at 133.5lbs to schedule their 10-round, non-title showdown.

The rest of the undercard bouts feature Omega Boxing Gym prospects Franco Serafica and Benny Cañete going up against John Kenan Villaflor and Mark Jequinto, respectively.

Serafica (6-1, 3KOs) weighed in at 127lbs while Villaflor (8-7-4, 2KOs) tipped the scales at 125lbs.

The unbeaten Cañete (3-0, 2KOs) weighed in at 118.6lbs and Jequinto (4-7-1) at 117.8lbs.
