Reymart “Assassin” Gaballo will face Manot Comput of Thailand for the vacant World Boxing Council Asian Boxing Council Super Bantamweight title on September 10 at the Tupi Municipal gym in Tupi, South Cotabato.
“I’m excited to be fighting for my first title fight. I can’t wait for that day and put that WBC belt around my waist,” said the 20-year old Gaballo.
Sanman Promotions Chief Executive Officer Jim Claude Mananquil of General Santos City said Gaballo exudes great boxing potential.
“He (Gaballo) is probably the hardest hitting boxer in the Sanman Gym. He’s very young and is still learning the sport of boxing,” Manangquil said in a statement.
Gaballo, who started boxing at 16, has won all his last seven fights either by knockout or technical knockout. He remains undefeated with a professional record of 14 wins including 12 knockouts.
“He has a big upside. He has something that you have to be born with and that is power,” said Manangquil.
However, the 33-year old Comput is also a knockout artist who won his last two fights by KO.
