CEBU CITY, Philippines—Harada Boxing Gym’s “Suntok Sa Pangarap VII” remains a stacked fight card despite the sudden withdrawal of former world interim champion Jhack Tepora due to medical reasons. 

The fight card promoted by Harada Boxing Gym (HBG) Promotions of Bohol will feature 11 exciting bouts in Panglao, Bohol, on  Friday, December 17, 2021. 

The main event features HBG’s prospect Danrick Sumabong (10-2,8KOs) of Tagbilaran City, who will fight Francis Jay Diaz (8-3-1, 1KO) for the vacant Philippine Youth super flyweight title for ten rounds.

Tepora was supposedly going to fight in the co-main event against Jino Rodrigo for his debut in the lightweight division. However, Tepora was forced to withdraw due to medical reasons.
