Domingo-Navarro Oct. 3rd

By Lee Bates

Former U.S.A. 2000 Olympian and 4-time world title challenger Jose Navarro (26-4, 12 KOs) will take on veteran Michael Domingo (38-14-2, 16 KOs) of the Philippines on October 3rd at the Cuneta Astrodome, in Pasay City, Metro Manila, Philippines. It will be Navarro’s first fight since February of 2008 when he lost by split decision to then WBC super flyweight champion Cristian Mijares. It was Navarro’s fourth unsuccessful attempt to win a world title. Navarro will have his hands full with Domingo who is riding a 7 bout win streak and is well known for pulling off upsets. In 2007 he upset then 22-0 highly touted prospect Miguel Roman by unanimous decision and about a year ago he upset former world champion Ratanachai Sor Vorapin of Thailand by 9th round TKO.

Also on the card will be world ranked minimumweight Milan Melindo of the Philippines (18-0, 5 KOs) who will look to keep his unbeaten win streak alive as he takes on hard punching Guadalupe Martinez (7-1, 7 KOs ) of Mexico who has a 100% KO percentage in his victories. Milan is world ranked no lower than number 5 by all four major sanctioning bodies. He impressively unanimously decisioned former world champion Muhammad Rachman in his last bout this past March and looks to continue on his world title quest with a victory over Martinez. Both Domingo and Melindo fight out of the well known ALA Boxing stable.
