Enterina, Vallespin to fight in August


DAVAO CITY – Super featherweight Glenn Enterina of Iligan City will fight Allan “El Matador” Vallespin of Bacolod at The Flash Grand Ballroom of the Elorde Sports Complex in Parañaque City on August 3.

The 24-year-old Enterina (14W-5L-1D, 9KO) twice defeated Jonel “The Prince” Gadapan both by unanimous decision last year.

Enterina, however, suffered a TKO loss in the 6th round to undefeated Jacob Ng of Australia in Queensland last March 16.

On the other hand, the 25-year-old Vallespin (12W-4L-0D, 9KO) won the Philippine super featherweight title knocking out former champion Warren Mambuanag of Agusan del Norte in the 5th round on May 12.

Vallespin lost in two back-to-back fights both held in Japan recently.

He was first lost by a majority decision to Musashi Mori last May 15, 2018 then suffered a knockout by Yoshimitsu Kimura in the 2nd round last February 14, 2019.

The boxing promoter is Gabriel “Bebot” Elorde Jr. of the Elorde International Productions.
