CEBU CITY – Merlito 'El Tigre' Sabillo (22-0, 11 KO's) of the ALA Gym will defend his WBO world minimumweight title against Jorle Estrada (17-6, 6 KO's) of Colombia on July 13 at the Solaire Resort and Casino in Manila. The formal launching for the title bout that will headline the 21st edition of the highly successful 'Pinoy Pride' series was held today at the St. Mark's Hotel in uptown Cebu.

The two main supporting bouts will feature 'King' Arthur Villanueva (22-0, 12 KO's), the reigning OPBF superflyweight champion, who will fight for the vacant WBO Asia-Pacific super flyweight title against Mexico's Arturo 'Fuerte' Badillo (21-4, 19 KO's) and AJ 'Bazooka' Banal (28-2-1, 20 KO's) versus another Mexican, Abraham 'Cholo' Gomez ( 18-7-1, 9 KO's).

“We prepared well for this title defense.” Sabillo said, “I will go for a knockout, it will be a matter of timing and delivery.”

“We doubled our efforts,” Trainer Edito Villamor added, “Winning the title has made Sabillo more dedicated. He is also mentally prepared. We will give a good show.”

Villanueva has not given up his OPBF belt; The WBO regional belt will boost his world ranking. Villanueva will be fighting a Mexican for the first time in his career.
