Cagayan de Oro boxer Milan Milendo is now in Dubai to face Devis Perez of Colombia on April 23 at The Lodge of Chi Garden for the WBC Youth Intercontinental flyweight title.
Milendo is with fellow ALA fighter Rey “Boom Boom” Bautista who will take on Thailand’s Saichon Sorornpitak in a ten-round non-title bout.
Accompanying the two ALA fighters are manager Michael Aldeguer and ALA Promotions vice-president for marketing Dennis Canete as well as the boxers’ trainers.
“They arrived at dawn,” informed sportsman Antonio L. Aldeguer, who also revealed that organizers in Dubai were busy burning the line trying to re-route the flight of Milendo opponent Devis Perez of Colombia.
Most flights in Europe have been cancelled due to the volcanic ash clouds caused by a volcano eruption in Iceland.
