ARQ Boxing Stable adds Macado, Wild to its roster of new boxing prospects
CEBU CITY, Philippines— The ARQ Boxing Stable continues to grow larger with the addition of two new prospects in 2022.
ARQ Sports, the promotional arm of the ARQ Boxing Stable, announced on Wednesday, January 5, the addition of Ramel Macado Jr. and Bryan James Wild to their growing roster of top-notch boxing prospects.
Macado Jr. is a former member of the national team that has an amateur record of 17 wins with five losses with three knockouts, according to Boxrec.com.
Macado, a native of Koronadal City, South Cotabato will make his pro debut in ARQ Sports’ planned fight cards this year, tentatively scheduled in February.
Macado hasn’t fought since 2020, but he had an impressive outing in 2019 wherein he won four of his five amateur bouts held in China and Thailand.
Meanwhile, the 20-year-old Wild of Sibagat, Agusan del Sur is an unbeaten pro boxer with six wins with five knockouts.
Wild already fought in Cebu four times. His most recent stint in Cebu last October 30 capped off with a knockout victory against Rimon Rama at the Tabunok sports complex in Talisay City.
