Pinoy Pride 35: "Stars of the Future" undercards

ALA Promotions' Pinoy Pride Series on its 35th installment will be back at its home base in Cebu for another spectacular fight card. Junior featherweight standout "Prince" Albert Pagara (25-0, 18 KO) will headline the card against Nicaragua's Yesner Talavera at the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel & Casino on 27 February. The event will be telecast by Philippine giant network ABS-CBN.

The 21-year-old Filipino has been touted as the next big thing in Philippine boxing. He's been undefeated for 25 fights, 18 fights inside the distance. Pagara has decent power in both hands. He's been impressive in his American debut, knocking out William Gonzalez in Round 6 at the Stub Center, Carson in October 2015. I'm expecting him to challenge for a world title this year.

It was also ALA promotion's US debut after a successful international venture held first in Dubai in September 2014.

Pagara knocked out Jesus Antonio Rios in Round 1 during Pinoy Pride's return to Dubai in August 2015.

Meanwhile, Talavera (15-3-1, 4 KO) has never been stopped in his three career defeats. This will be his first fight outside of his native Nicaragua.


Now on it's 35th installment, the successful Pinoy Pride series will be back at their home turf giving the Cebuano fans back their fighters. Below is the full list of under-cards.

  • Mark Magsayo vs. Edwardo Montoya, Featherweights 10 Rounds
