Revenge will be Mexican Vega’s main mission in Pinoy Pride 4

TO BEAT Milan Melindo and avenge his compatriots’ loss to Filipino boxers in recent fights.

These are the main goals of Mexican warrior Rosendo “El Matador” Vega when he battles Filipino Milan “Metodico” Melindo Satureday night in the co-main event of the Pinoy Pride 4: Philippines Versus the World at the Waterfront Hotel and Casino in Lahug.

Vega, who vowed to avenge the recent loss of countryman Fernando Montiel to Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire, will arrive today along with the other foreign fighters seeing action in the blockbuster card including Francis Miyeyusho of Tanzania, Africa; Canadian Steve Clagget, Kenichi Yamaguchi of Japan and Jemmy Gobel of Indonesia.

They will face the local media for a press conference at the Mooon Cafe in the Walk of the Asiatown IT Park, Lahug.

Vega (16 wins with 11 knockouts and six losses), who lost a close 10-round decision to WBA flyweight world champion Daiki Kameda of Japan, has the arsenals to derail the world title aspiration of the cat-quick Melindo.

Melindo is gunning for an impressive win to be named the mandatory challenger to IBF flyweight champion Moruti Mthelane.

ALA Promotions president Michael Aldeguer warns that “Melindo is not taking this fight lightly. He has trained just as hard – maybe even harder than when he fought former IBF world champion Carlos Tamara.” Aldeguer added, “He has everything to lose including a probable world title shot this year if he fails to hurdle this fight.”

When asked to assess his coming fight with Vega, the undefeated 21-year-old Melindo quipped, “Vega will not know what will hit him. My training for this fight is primarily focused on power, I will be much stronger for this fight than ever before.”

The highly world-rated Melindo is one of the most talented wards of the famed ALA Promotions and has fought and beaten some world-class fighters like former world champions Carlos Tamara and Muhammad Rachman, world title challenger Carlos Melo of Panama, Guadalupe Martinez, former WBC Youth Intercontinental champion Anthony Villareal of the USA and the OPBF No. 2 contender Jin Man Jeon of Korea.
