Balunan, the reigning World Boxing Organization (WBO) Asia Pacific youth minimumweight champion, will square off with veteran Clyde Azarcon in a 10-rounder non-title bout.

The 29-year-old Davao City native had fought the likes of world champion Ginjiro Shigeoka along with a long list of Filipino contenders in Lito Dante, Jake Amparo, Rene Mark Cuarto, Joey Canoy, Vic Saludar, and prospect John Paul Gabunilas.
