UNDEFEATED junior featherweight pug Genesis “Azukal” Servania will fight former two-time World Boxing Association junior bantamweight champion Alexander Muñoz on March 1 in the latest edition of Pinoy Pride at the Solaire Resort in Pasay City.
Servania, 22, who holds 23-0 win-loss record with nine knockouts, had a series of impressive fights last year that include his successful defense of his World Boxing Organization Inter-Continental junior bantamweight belt plus a technical decision victory over Konosuke Tomiyama of Japan in Macau, China.
Muñoz, 34, is considered a seasoned boxer known for his aggressiveness and knockout prowess. The Venezuelan fighter holds 36-5 win-loss record with 28 knockouts.
ALA President Michael Aldeguer said that the result of Servania’s fight against Muñoz would determine if the Filipino is ready for another world title bout.
“Let’s just see what would happen in that fight since I don’t like to rush him (Servania) [to fight a world title bout]. But I’m optimistic he’ll do better,” said Aldeguer.
Servania is presently training in Freddie Roach’s Wild Card Gym in the US before going to Tijuana, Mexico to train in Erik Morales’ gym.
