Double boxing event on SKY Sports Pay-Per-View this Sunday

Boxing fans are sure to be glued to their seats this Sunday, January 28 as SKY brings a boxing event featuring two world title bouts starting at approximately 10:30 AM.  Former interim WCB super lightweight champion Lucas Matthyse (38-4, 35 KO) and undefeated welterweight fighter Tewa Kiram (38-0, 28 KO) will vie for the vacant WBA welterweight title this Sunday. Matthyse is an experienced fighter at 35 years old, with wins over former world champions like Humberto Soto, Lamont Peterson and Ruslan Provodnikov. However, this will only be the second time he will fight at 147 lbs as the Argentine slugger moved up a division last year. This match is Kiram’s US debut, having fought mostly in his native of Thailand. The 25 year old is not only the unknown fighter in this card but also the underdog as he will face a powerful slugger. It is unsure whether he can fight at this level against a former champion. Meanwhile, WBA lightweight world champion Jorge Linares (43-3, 27 KO) will defend his title against Mercito Gesta at the same fighting event. Linares, who hails from Venezuela, is a three-division world champion who successfully defended his title from Luke Campbell last September 2017. He is very focused on this fight as he expects fights with bigger athletes, like Vasyl Lomachenko, to come after. On the other hand, Gesta has been training with Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach, the same coach to People’s Champ, Sen. Manny Pacquiao. The Cebu native has been thought of as the next Filipino boxingchamp and has won five of his last six matches, with two KO wins. Watch these exciting matches on Sunday, January 28, through SKY Sports Pay-Per-View for only P149. This is available to all One SKY, SKYcable, SKYdirect, subscribers.
