Domingo eyes bigger fights after beating Espinas in mainer of SanMan Bubble 8
CEBU CITY, Philippines — Esneth “Hard Hitter” Domingo is confident to land title fights in the future if he wins against Jesse Espinas in the main event of Sanman Bubble VIII on February 26 at the Sanman Gym in General Santos City.
The 23-year old Domingo, the nephew of former world title challenger Michael Domingo will be fighting his second main event bout against an equally dangerous foe in Espinas.
“Kung makadaog ko aning duwaa, isa pud sa akong pangandoy nga maka duwa ug championship. Mao sad na pangandoy sa tanan boxers. Ug labi na sa tanan akong pangandoy maka angkon ug bisan unsa nga klase nga belt,” said Domingo who sports a record of 15 wins, eight knockouts with one defeat.
Espinas, a road warrior who already fought three times in Thailand has a 20-4 (win-loss) record with 11 knockouts.
Domingo, a former prospect of the disbanded ALA Boxing Gym said that he is very confident of winning against the more experienced Espinas since he has been training extensively for this fight.
“I train for almost five months para sa big event this coming February 26 and I am ready. I also dedicated this fight to my family nga naa permi para suportahan ko og sa akong asawa og sa akong mga anak nga naga antos nga mag lagyo-ay mi para ipadayon nako akong career sa boxing,” added Domingo.
“Very confident kaayo ko nga madaog ko aning duwaa kay ako ni gipangandaman ug maayo kay sa wa pa koy schedule nga duwa nag sulti na sila manager nako na ila ko tagaan ug kalaban na gahi so amo ni gipangandaman sa akong uncle nga si Michael Domingo nga maoy naga training nako sa wa pa naka larga ug US, ug kang coach Ronerex Dalut nga maoy ni training nako diri sa SanMan karon.”
Domingo is riding on a four-fight winning streak after losing to Alphoe Dagayloan in 2019 for the WBA Asia flyweight title via unanimous decision in Cavite.
He bounced back convincingly knocking two of his last four opponents.
Despite his confidence, Domingo said that he is not underestimating Espinas and considers the latter a tough boxer to beat.
“Dili ko maka ingon nga matumba kay labi sa tanan dili ko mahilig mo underestimate ug kontra ug labaw sa tanan gahi pud akong makalaban. But I will do my best to make it happen,” added Domingo.
Espinas hasn’t fought since October 12, 2019, when he beat former world title challenger Denver Cuello by unanimous decision in a non-title bout in Manila. /rcg
