CEBU CITY, Philippines — ARQ Boxing Promotions will have one of its banner boxers, John Paul Gabunilas, fight in the main event of their stacked fight card on Dec. 20, 2022 at the Municipality of San Fernando gymnasium in southern Cebu.
The 22-year-old Gabunilas of Barangay Pardo, Cebu City will be donning his new moniker “The Destroyer” from being called “Angas ng Cebu” as he takes on the more experienced former Philippine flyweight champion Jessie “Little Giant” Espinas in a non-title showdown.
